Re: Huckleberries

I am embarrassed to admit that I've never gathered huckleberries before. What do I need to know to get started? Are there any look-alikes that are dangerous?

Re: 2015 Berry Thread

I headed out in the ccw direction from Timberline on Wed. morning. I must have missed you. I was running/hiking alone. Congrats on your trip. I'm sure that must have been really special with your daughter.
