I'll Be Your Huckleberry!
December 27, 2012
Have you ever tried huckleberry? It’s delicious! It tastes like a cross between a plum and a grape.
The first time I encountered the fruit, huckleberry, was on a trip to Montana. The few times I’ve encountered huckleberry was either in the saying, "I’ll be your huckleberry" or in reference to Huckleberry Finn.
But Montana shattered the huckleberry glass for me! The people of Montana are huckleberry crazy there; they love it in just about anything. You can get it in coffee, lip balm, wine, ice cream, soda, candy, preserves, and lotion. If you can’t make it to Montana or the Rocky Mountain region, you can Google the delectable fruit online. One place that is great is The Huckleberry Patch.
If you're into the huckleberry treats, you might stop by your local Buffalo Wild Wings for huckleberry lemonade and limeade.
We have several books to satisfy your travels to the Rocky Mountain Region. But here is a one book that I'd highly recommend:
- Hiking Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks: A Guide to the Parks' Greatest Hiking Adventures by Erik Molvar.
