Mountain Berries – Desert Pods

[today’s run: Coyote Ridge 4.5 miles]

When we were in RMNP a couple of weeks ago, hiking and camping, we went on a bit of a hike up the Fern Lake trail.  Along the way I saw a lot of berries.  There were three kinds, red, pink and blue.  My wife told me the pink ones were rose hips.  Later she said the blue ones were huckleberries.  I don’t know what the red ones are.   We didn’t see any bears eating the berries, but it looked like a good crop that would attract that kind of attention.

Newsflash!  Google tells me these are probably Oregon Grape  (not huckleberries, sorry Sweetie)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another notable plant-life thing we saw on that trip was at the Devil’s Backbone down near Loveland. It is a more arid, open area there. And I saw these pod things on the yucca plants. Google tells me they are seed pods.
