Harvest time

Shelley and I went to Riggins this week. 

We hiked up Lake Creek-Patrick Creek trail for about 3 miles and gained about 3000 feet in elevation. Yeah, our legs felt great afterwards. 
On the return stretch near the tree lined riparian corridor, we found some morrels.  Not enough to run out and harvest but a few, plenty for one night's dinner for two.  Yummy yum yum.

I also saw two orchids.  Such beautiful flowers.

A week ago the sun came out and the temperature was above 60'F.  Whoa!  So Todd, the zoo and i went to the Salmon River.  The water was cold, very cold, but it felt great on my legs after the hike up the steep Salmon River breaks hill slope.
