Purple "Gold"

A favorite North Idaho pastime is the picking of huckleberries. Carl and Genie Riegert of Post Falls had a successful outting on Fernan Saddle this past weekend and have the purple fingers to prove it! Huckleberries sell for about $50 a gallon, hence the nickname "purple gold." Important to note that bears love huckleberries as much as we do!

  1. mmm... Way to go Carl. Gotta make sure I get my kiddos up there picking for some real purple finger memories soon. Thanks for sharing this pic Kerri.
