PHOTO EYE | I’m Your Huckleberry

T he damp soil and strong sunlight of Priest Lake makes for one of the region’s best huckleberry-picking spots. As huckleberry season kicks off in mid-July, the area is chock-full of bushes like the one pictured, discovered east of Priest Lake near Hunt Creek Falls. “[Huckleberries] taste like Priest Lake,” longtime Priest Lake local Pecky Cox says. “Priest Lakers have a special connection through that flavor.” ♦
