Berry Picking!!!


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:)

                                                          MINE!!!

That does look yummy! Does it really have salmon in it?
I can't imagine, fresh grown raspberries for the picking!
I have to agree with Peg, it looks fun.

Salmon berries are a new fruit for me, but they look delicious. Sarah does know her way about the kitchen.

This looks delicious. I just love fresh picked berries and they make recipes so much better.
