Don't Be a Guberif, Huckleberry Cheesecake and Ponderosa Pine State Park

After settling in at beautiful Ponderosa Pine State Park, we went to dinner with the Lohffs and Uncle John and Aunt Margaret.  It was so good to see them all again.

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!
