Tuesday Karen (personal trainer) and I went berry picking out near the old Treadwell Mine. While we were on our way, we came across some zipliners. Nope!!! This is one activity I will be skipping - look how far off the ground this guy is hanging from that cable:) That speck in the trees is a person!!!
Berry picking was a lot of fun and I got almost enough to make the Salmon Berry Crisp that Sarah requested. There were lots of berries but some were not quite ripe so I may have to go again unless someone beats me to them. They are so pretty! When Sarah got off work,
we she made the Salmon Berry Crisp and added a few raspberries to the berries I picked. Yummy! I must say she looked like a natural in the kitchen. She has been hiding her cooking abilities from the rest of us. Note to Doug: Your reputation as the family chef is in danger:):) This was delicious!! (the secret family recipe as requested by Jan can be found here: Berry Crisp) FYI: salmon berries grow wild in Southeast Alaska. They taste similar to raspberries. Nothing to do with salmon:)
