This trip was into Thimbleberry Heaven!
We would take a few steps, pick a berry or two, hike a step, pick a berry, etc., etc.
They were so delicious!
We saw a bear cross the road about five miles from the trailhead, and even saw bear scat on the trail.
Bears, too, enjoy the thimblebernes!
The weather was perfect for hiking and the sights of the Cascades greeted us as we ate our lunch
atop the mountain.
It was a good hike with the following great people: Cheryl Berry, Randi Brox, Helen Liguori,
Dick Hildreth, Karen Myers, Margaret Malsch and leader Diane Jeffcott.
