With my last totally free weekend before I head back to school, yeah that's right school...
Starting Tuesday I will be heading off to university to further my education in forestry.
With that said, I spent my last study free Saturday looking for blueberries.
Never hurts to have bear spray with you, especially when your a good ways from a main road.
You can bet that as much as you're looking for natures blue bounty, there will be a bear or two also looking.
Honestly I don't even know if this can of spray would do anything, have had it in my cruising vest for some time now.
I guess the comfort is in knowing that I have never used it.
It's probably still a bit early as you can tell by the bush above, however it's never a bad idea to scope out an area.
The good thing about blueberries is you can generally find them anywhere.
I find myself sticking to dryer sandy sites with evident rock outcropping.
Older clear cuts often offer great opportunities to fill your pails.
Within a few minutes.
Once you find them its hard to stop picking. With the rain picking up, I opted to head back to the truck.
Spot marked for my return...
Berries put to good use...
