After a wonderful dinner, Jan pulled out her signature Huckleberry Cheesecake. She had picked the huckleberries herself, which meant they were very fresh . . . and so delicious! We could have eaten the whole pie.
We were lucky to get a spot in Ponderosa Pines State Park, but we did. They had one pull-through spot left, and we took it. The wooded park has a number of campsites, but they are far enough apart that it is very quiet. In the morning when I took Babs out at 6:15, a small buck was standing twenty feet away. He watched me for a few minutes and slowly walked away.
As we drove into the park the first time, we noticed on the road someone had written "Don't Be a Guberif." A Guberif? We had no idea what it meant. The next day, Dr. Google told me that Guberif is Firebug, backwards. Indeed it is. In Idaho, Guberif is a happy-go-lucky creature who reminds Idahoans of their responsibilities with the forests. Who knew?
Don and I walked around a bit, took a drive looking for huckleberries, and then it was time to leave. This is a park to which we would return. Lovely!
