Jakolof Bay Part 3...

I don't know what it is about berries. Not just any berries, they have to be wild. Angela just can't get enough of them. You may remember some post from last fall in which the berry obsession was first realized. When I ask why she likes picking berries so much, she says "It's just fun." I may not understand it, but I know it brings happiness into her life. It is genetic also - the girls seem to love it almost as much as Angela. The berries below are Salmonberries and blueberries. Angela has already converted the salmonberries into jelly and we are waiting for it to cool to taste it. They are a bit tart and have quite a few seeds but are very similar to raspberries. Enjoy the pictures. Don't worry I think I have only one Jakolof post left. Teaser for tomorrow's post "Pot problems... No, not that kind of pot!"
Next posts are as follows Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4

Ok, I'm with Angela. I really love picking wild berries too. I can't exactly explain why. I just know that Danny thinks I'm nuts when we are driving in the van and I can't help but point out where I see wild blackberries growing.

We got those berries right up the path off the dock of Jakalof Bay. Last year we had some luck with blueberries on the Russian River Falls trail. There are also tons of cranberries out there, which you can freeze and use for cranberry sauce during the holidays. I've also heard you can find blueberries out Marathon Rd. in Kenai, but I haven't actually found any good spots out there.

Have you tried the Tutka bay cove berries? On the left side of the bay there is a yurt and trail head, I have never seen so many berries in my life. It was the first week in Sept, and we picked until we got sick of it, 5 gallons later. There were soooo many left.
