    Head WAY back behind Eureka and you'll find more than you can carry.

    If you are headed towards the peninsula, stop off in girdwood. You can ride the tram up @ Alyeska for some fantastic views of Turnagain Arm, then when you ride down, walk out the North Face trail. Blueberries the size of your thumb knuckle abound there as well.

    Well, I can definitely say not to waste time or tunnel tolls to pick in Whittier this year. The past two years were awesome for both blueberries and salmon berries, but this year the caterpillars killed off almost everything.

    Friends of mine picked at Hatcher the other day and did very well on blueberries. They're all over the place up there.
