For the naturalist, a field guide would be handy to help you identify and study the variety you'll see. Did you know there are eight different soft pines and some 25 different hard pines? We have a fair share of them at the ranch, plus we have willows, aspen, poplar, birch mulberry and many others. You'll enjoy the variety of wild flowers and berries in our area. Whether you are here in the spring for wild strawberries, or spend a summer evening in a wild blueberry patch, the picking will be plentiful. Late summer will offer raspberries and blackberries so don't miss a single season of berry picking up north. Other popular varieties include ground cherries, choke cherries and June berries. Wild mushrooms are plentiful for the experienced picker. Nature provides a vast number of special edibles and they are always ready for picking.
