Berries abound

Photos by Ned Harris 9/11/2015

Wolfberries look like mini-mini-tomatoes - and, yes, the plant (Lycium exsertum) is in the same family as tomatoes, eggplants, potatoes, even - and just as edible. That's the same family as Sacred Datura (Datura wrightii), though; definitely not edible.

Bottom line is this: don't eat the plants, fungi, or animals in the canyon. And you don't want to drink the creek water, either. As Michael likes to say: Live to play another day!
