Forest delicacy

The salmonberries (Rubus spectabilis) are starting to ripen in the local forests. The berries are often somewhat scarce, so they can be a real treat when you find them.

Also, the cottonwood trees are living up to their name. Their cottony seeds are starting to fall like snow and collect in bunches on the ground. Things could get messy over the next couple of weeks 😉
