In early September the chokecherries were beginning to ripen, and I ate a a few as I always do on hikes. This fruit is tart with very little to it with the part seed, but these cherries are very tasty to me. The Native Americans you to forage chokecherries, which are abundant this time of year.

    1. These might be big for chokecherries. The berries are about an inch in diameter. I ate a ton, and everyone looked at me like I was weird. No, not everyone, just my niece is going through her emo phase. The hike was fun, but she complained about wanting to hang out with her friends that day we went. I still have so many pictures I have not posted, and these were back from early September when the old camera broke.
