Five hikers caravanned to Rustler Park and piled into the cab and bed of a truck to get to Long Park. Late July is the peak season for wild raspberries in the Chiricahuas, and we came prepared to harvest our share. We took the Long Park Trail to Fly Saddle (Fly Park) and started picking.

We moved south along the Crest Trail, finding more productive berry patches and a magnificent fungus.

Berry picking is hard work, so we needed some recovery time.After lunch, we continued along the trail and found more berries.

At Round Park, we headed back to the truck via the Bear Wallow, Centella and Long Park Trails for a total hike of almost four miles. Dreams of pies and other delicacies danced in our heads.

Next week, August 6, we will hike the Greenhouse Trail and investigate reported deadfall on the upper section. Meet at the Silver Peak trailhead at 8 AM (9 AM NM time) for carpooling/caravanning.
