Purple hands, wet tents, and good friends

We and several other families met up for a two-night camping trip at Peterson Prairie, over on the east side of the mountains last weekend to pick huckleberries and enjoy one more camping trip this past weekend.  It was really fun and I think we had pretty good success with our picking.  Our family took back something under two gallons, which is a lot as huckleberries go.  They're really small and there's not that many on a bush so the picking is pretty slow work.  We also enjoyed great times around the campfire and good food (sorry, no pictures of that stuff).  The weather was great for most of the time, but the last morning it rained as we ate breakfast and packed up.  Oh well, it just added a little excitement!
