More plentiful on Hollyburn. Give it 2 more days though. Picked 2 2L containers of blue yesterday.

Sweet, so now is the time to pick the berries. Will be on the look out for them on my near term hikes.

No, that sounds ridiculous. Why are you asking?

Well, it's a park... I don't think you can pick mushrooms for instance...

This site

claims that hand-to-mouth picking is tolerated but picking into containers is not...

depriving the bears and all....

People do worse things, and you're worrying about harmlessly picking berries?!

Not ridiculous, because it is a provincial park with no harvesting rules and I was wondering if the rangers ticket you or warn you first.

Hmm, I hadn't thought of berry picking as harvesting. I guess the container makes a difference.

It's shaping up to be a good year for berries on the north shore!
