Happy Thanksgiving!

To Canada that is. Monday, Oct 10th is the date that Canada celebrates their Thanksgiving. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thanksgiving_(Canada)

So I went out to my favorite bog habitat to try to find some ripe Cranberries.

I remembered that there were an abundance of Cranberry flowers this spring, see my previous blog post from June. http://blog.visitcranelake.com/wildflowers-aplenty/

And I wasn’t disappointed. I picked these Cranberries just from the trail without getting my feet wet. If I wanted more, I would have to go back with some good waterproof boots, or better yet, hip waders.

It has been a beautiful fall for hiking and hunting.

    Wow, I’ll have to see if I can find any ripe wild cranberries where I am (Wisc/UP border)! Someone pointed out the plants to me over the summer. Hopefully I can remember what they look like…
