Nature’s aid stations – wild saskatoon berries

I understand there are people who have never heard of saskatoon berries. Wow, they are missing out. This time of year in in our part of Canada they are out in force. Many of my trails are lined with saskatoon bushes with these amazing quick snacks. They are just smaller than blueberries but so numerous and easy to find, and usually at chest height. It is so tempting to stop for breaks on the trail during saskatoon season that my training sometimes suffers a little.

But look out for the bears, they love them too.

Coming up next? Raspberry season. That’s usually in August. Can’t wait.
