There were plenty on Tom Dick and Harry today. Not as well grazed as I imagine they'd be by the weekend.

The were a few near the top of Augspurger last Thursday but I think I ate most of them.

Also, I hiked up to Pechuck Lookout on Sunday and backtracked to Rooster Rock - lots of huckleberries along the trail.

We hiked to Phantom Natural Bridge on Saturday then hiked up Battle Ax on Sunday and found MILLIONS of huckleberries along both trails. I have never seen such an abundance of huckleberries. I think it helps that these are both seldom-traveled hikes. We couldn't eat them all, and left plenty for the next hiker. :)

Maybe about three weeks ago they were big and plump and juicy as they drooped over elk cove trail on hood. I blame them for my slow pace.

A couple days ago I was grabbing handfulls along timberline trail below paradise park, but they were past prime. Still pretty good though.

I bet I've enjoyed more this year than I have in all previous years combined. I'm slowing down and "smelling the roses" as I get older.
