My husband and I jaunted over to Olympic National Park for a quick one night backpacking trip up to flapjack lakes.
We ate salmon berries along the trail, and wistfully walked past unripe huckleberries. Trailing blackberry and thimbleberry were also ripening.
What was that? No foraging allowed in National Parks? Oh yeah...

|Perhaps we'll come back up around labor day,|
when these hucks will be ripe and juicy.
Last weekend they were simply pretty flowers.
