Once we found the fishing was not so good, we put on long pants and went to try to find the famous wild blueberries that are so well known on the Gunflint Trail.
Normally, the blueberry season is early to mid July. But because we had such a long winter and it took forever to warm up, the blueberries were at peak when we were there.
We have never picked blueberries before. We had a quick lesson as to what the difference between a bluebell and a blueberry was. Pretty simple to see the difference.
We started off on a trail that looked rocky and a little overgrown. That way we knew that they would not be picked over. I was a little leery of snakes, due to the fact that your hands were close to the ground and the bushes are great hiding places for them but I never did see any.
These were all public trails, but of course we went off the beaten path.
I mean really off…Geneva got stuck on a log.
