I had read that Prospect Heights, a trailhead in Chugach State Park, near our home was a place where we could pick lowbush cranberries (aka lingonberries), so one afternoon earlier this month I convinced Kara that we should take the five kids out hunting on the park trails.
We did not find a single lingonberry, but I did see a few (very few) bushes. What we did find was a couple of climbing trees. Climbing trees are hard to find in this part of the state, so the kids took advantage of the opportunity.
Someday we will find a good lingonberry patch!
