Blueberries and Brace Mountain

Mom was given the fullfillment of her summer's dream today when we picked wild blueberries at the top of South Brace Mountain. We almost made it to North Brace Mountain (the highest point in Dutchess County), but we were pretty plum tuckered out as it was. I have never fallen so many times descending a mountain. I think I am getting old.

(My nicest camera came up and down the mountain with us, which is unfortunate because I put a nice big scratch in the lens when I slipped on one of the steep and wet rocks. The story gets even more unfortunate because I ran out of batteries before I even took a picture! )

However, the wild blueberries were probably worth all of these dificulties!
