Josiah (my 12 year old) and I hiked Barr Trail yesterday and found many wild edibles. On the list were:

  • Gooseberries
  • Chokecherries
  • Yucca
  • Juniper
  • Kinnikinnik
  • Mullein
  • Scrub Oak
  • Thimbleberries
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Prickly Pear
  • and an escaped apricot tree

Of course none of these things were in an edible state yet, but there’s a lot on the face of Pikes Peak for you to harvest (ethically of course).
