This page continues from Page 2, and the first photo on this page was taken at 9:12 AM as we continued driving out the Chena Hot Springs Road to Angel Rocks for Lingonberry picking.  Starting with the center shot in Row 3 we are on the Angel Rocks Trail climbing and searching for Lingonberries.  Click on any thumbnail to begin.

  Here are three nice photos which show autumn color along the Chena Hot Springs Road and also along the Chena River.

  Here are an additional three photos which show autumn color. The center shot shows Granite Tors, rocky tors which there is a trail to, though we have never climbed the 8 miles up there.

  The first shot in this row is the final one which was taken as we were driving to Angel Rocks Trail. The second shot was taken while we were hiking up the trail. Study this shot and you'll find a dark spot near the center of the photo which we have outlined. What is it? In the third photo you can see that it is a bird of some sort, but what kind of bird is it?

  Ah, now it's become obvious that it is a Spruce Grouse (Falcipennis canadensis). It was quite calm and allowed us to get quite close to it before it started running along the trail to stay ahead of us. Finally, it went off the side of the trail and let us pass.

  There is one short section of boardwalk along this trail. It is through a dampish area, so it is welcome. Note the nice autumn colors which show up.

  Neither of these photos were taken this year, but they show what we came here to get - Lingonberries (Vaccinium vitis-idaea). In the past it took us about an hour to fill these two 1-gallon containers, but this year we picked for closer to 3 hours before we had a full two gallons of berries. It was a lot of work, but we freeze them and then make jam with them and enjoy them all winter long.
