BERRY GOOD

Besides having lots of moose, Alaska has a lot of berries.

All kinds of berries.

Lowbush cranberries on Flattop.

Like low bush cranberries – unlike the bog-dependent cranberries I’m familiar with, low bush cranberries grow in the wild and are not cultivated. People do pick them, however, as were some people on Flattop Mountain that Sunday afternoon.

Highbush cranberries.

But Alaska also has high bush cranberries with the notable reputation of smelling like wet, dirty socks.

Alaska also has many plants that aren’t cranberries or any other kind of berries either, but they are pretty.
