Life at the campground has been pretty awesome. It's really the first time, in a very LONG time, we all have had a chance to just relax. We didn't feel the pressure to do this that or the other. We had the opportunity (sometimes thanks to the weather) to just be. We also soon learned that our campground had a lot more to offer up than 'just' a gorgeous view and wonderful people. Our hosts introduced us to all the edible berries in the area! There were a total of 5 different kinds, some we've never even heard of! And that's not even including the abundant rose hips we harvested for medicinal purposes and use.
This is the end result of berry picking.....
The berries that didn't get eaten right away were tossed into our smoothies for an extra healthy and tasty boost!
Like I said, relaxing. Anybody ever know S to lay down and take a nap?! It's unheard of.

More berry picking on a spectacularly fogy morning -
Yup, that's the lake with dead trees sticking up out of it. Those are trees that slid down the mountain when the slide occurred and have been there since.....
