Down south we eat a lot of things — chitlins, muscadines, grits, etc. — that aren’t known in other parts of the country or, at least, aren’t favored by our fellow citizens. While out west, I’ve discovered huckleberry. Further, I’ve discovered that I really like huckleberry. In fact, I’m becoming a huckleberry hound. I’ve tried huckleberry caramel in Wyoming. I tried huckleberry ice cream at Yellowstone. Both were so tasty that, next, I think I’m going to try huckleberry wine. I just have to find some. I’m hoping Montana can deliver on that later this week.
In the meantime…I’m partaking of the hot and cold that is Yellowstone. Snow-capped peaks and ice cold streams to steaming hot springs, mud pools and geysers. It’s a landscape of extremes.
