I had hoped to find huckleberries during our visit to Priest Lake, but they were just pitiful this year. Or maybe we arrived too late. I don't know. In any case, we found thousands of huckleberry bushes, but only a small handful of berries. After more than two hours, we picked less than a pint. Sad.

Or maybe we had to compete with the animals. Rhonda and I stood just a few feet away from a chipmunk that climbed into the bushes to gorge himself on huckleberries. The little animal paid us no mind whatsoever, even as we got almost close enough to touch it.
