Actually along the Red lake trail the entire first 4 miles or so walks through an old Burn Area..the forest is coming back and its a haven for birds and mammals.

Thimble Berries

November 27, 2014  |  Vacation  |  1 Comment

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.. Since today is about the feasting and giving thanks, the Thimble berries on the red lake trail make the perfect topic. Very thankful they were there and what a feast as we walked along snagging the ripe berries and snacking for miles. Of course with these ripe berries, it causes one to think bears might also be out looking for a snack..
