I set off for a 35+ mile run deep into the Lick Creek Range near Lick Creek Summit. Bushwhacking and non-existent trails cut the run short to around 13 miles. Oh well, the country was beautiful, the huckleberries were bountiful and the day was still a great success. To those who say the huckleberry crop is weak this year, you should really see it above 7,000'. Unbelievable.
