  1. Middle of no-where Nevada seems to be notorious for bad things to happen….. we were on our way home from ID last July and my dad was so very sick! We ended up spending the night in a hotel despite our intentions to camp (it rained too!)

    I’m sure you had an amazing time with your family 🙂 And have lots of pictures too of those special moments!

    Are whortleberries like huckleberries? I’ve heard there aren’t any blackberries in ID… or at least no tenacious native ones like we have here!

    1. No, whortleberries are very different from huckleberries. They’re very, very small and round and are usually a dark orange colour. The plants grow as ground cover. Because they’re so small you have to pick a lot of them to get enough to eat, but they’re so good! 🙂

      1. Thanks for the reply. I had been curious about whortleberries for a long time! It sounds like they are worth picking 🙂
        I want to pick huckleberries sometime too; hopefully next summer if we’re back up in ID

  2. It sounds like you had a great visit with your parents! And the way that you describe Cedar’s interaction with his Grandpa is adorable!
