There aren't going to be many weekends left for [almost] snow-free mountain hiking. This weekend was surely that last where you could still feel a warm breeze on the ridge tops. I hiked up the Mt. Magnificent Trail again, but didn't make it all the way to Mt. Magnificent itself; There were too many photos to be taken and berries to picked.
There are still tons of blueberries and crowberries up on the ridge. They have been frozen and are mushy, but they'll be fine for jam. I saw a few lingonberries but not enough to bother picking. My mission next weekend will be to look for a good patch.
