    • I felt like an addict on the trails this morning when we encountered tons of thimble berries. I could not stop eating them!
::
They look kinda like raspberries at first glance. For years we saw them on the trails and recently Forest learned what they were and that in fact they are edible.
::
It’s fun to combine trail running, foraging, some off trail exploring, and a little sun time all in one adventure with the family.

    • It doesn’t get much better then from forest gathering to dessert in a matter of hours.
::
I spend a lot of time thinking about exercise vs life and how to incorporate the two into one stacked activity.
::
This weekend was the perfect real world example - during our run/hike we stopped and took an hour to gather huckleberries. The movement of Berry picking worked a number of muscles and gave us food for dessert.
::
When life and workouts mesh into one.
