Along the trail: Mulberry time!

One of the many small pleasures of springtime along the River Trail is the arrival of free-for-the-taking snacks growing along the trail. There is a bumper crop of sweet, ripe mulberries right now, and they'll soon be followed by plums and blackberries.

These beauties are sweet and delicious.

You can't eat mulberries without staining your fingertips, but it's worth it! Trailside mulberry trees are easily located by the smashed fallen berries marking the trail.

Another call out for NLR Parks!
Diane reported that NLR Fire Dept. crews were out Thursday washing the the dirt off of the trail. Thanks!!
