We finally found the blueberries! Steese Highway - August 2015



Because of the hot dry weather earlier this summer, the blueberry harvest right around Fairbanks has been disappointing.  However, on a scouting expedition up the Steese Highway about a month ago we found a promising hillside. We went back this weekend and found blueberries aplenty!

 

 We picked for about an hour on Sunday evening and about an hour on Monday morning, and came back with about two gallons. The weather was drizzly Sunday night (no bugs) an overcast with a slight breeze on Monday morning (few bugs). All-in-all an excellent expedition.



All I'm allowed to say about the location is that its on this side of 12-Mile Summit, and we left plenty of berries.
