This time last year I was leaving for our Slice of America Trip 2 and the blackberries were just coming into their yummyness and I missed them all!  Dear Hubby enjoyed them all himself!  That is what I get for leaving!

Well, this time I am here and I'm on them!  This is the 2nd picking and there are just enough for the two of us every other day.

Blackberries and ice cream!!!!  It brings back all kinds of good memories when the kids were little and we would camp up along the Avenue of the Giants in Humboldt County, CA.  We would bring our bikes and we would ride for breakfast to Myers Flat or go all the way up to Rio Del.  Quite a ways for the kids but we had lots of fun.  On the way there would be blackberry bushes and we would snack on them.  And of course, we would pick enough to take back to camp, get some ice cream on the way and enjoy relaxing in our campsite with "blackberries and ice cream"!!!

And, of course, IF there were any blackberries left, they went in the pancakes the next morning!  Yum!


  1. Rio Dell is 25 miles from Myers Flat!! That was quite a bike ride!

  2. We usually biked from the Burlington campground when we went to Rio Del so that was a lot shorter than from Myers Flat. But we did bike far and we were all in shape!
