Yes, we’re still alive. We’re back “up the hill” where our son and his in-laws live. We’ve been spending some time decompressing and reconnecting.
Recently I got to engage in a very Northwest activity: picking huckleberries.
Step 1: Drive to the middle of nowhere. (We have an advantage on this one, as we already live there!)
Step 2: Drive up to at least 3,500 feet. (Elevation affects when they ripen, so you have to find the right level for when you go picking.)
Step 3: Find plants with berries. (I found the first berry, which was explained away as beginner’s luck.)
Step 4: Pick berries till your back hurts.
Step 5: Drive home and enjoy!
