We drove our car up into the mountains (as far as the road allowed) and set off on foot. There were bushes everywhere. We could have started picking berries within about 500ft of our car but we were in need of a little weekend adventure So, we traveled up into the hills and settled on a spot in a high valley between two higher peaks. This ended up being the perfect spot. The berries were huge and incredibly sweet. We snacked the whole time we picked :)
This adventure left me longing for Fall to be in full-swing. I am sure in a couple of months I will be missing the sun and warmth but the weather this weekend made me so nostalgic for my favorite season. We were lucky to collect multiple bags of berries and we hope to make another trip up later this week. I am sure we will be busy making blueberry concoctions (both to eat and store) over the next week. Just another reason why I love my favorite season :)
