Ok, so I now have the "Alaska Wild Berry Guide and Cookbook," from the Wasilla library. Today I was flipping through the book to identify the berries I found in the woods here on the outskirts of town.

(Bunchberries or Dogberries?. I am not sure.)

Are these highbush cranberries or red currants? From an outward appearance these berries appear "milky" inside, semi-translucent and could pass as salmon eggs.
Can anyone help identify these plants? If needed I can upload better pictures with the leaves shown in a more distinct pose. Thank you.
