Blue berry

Vaccinium uliginosum
Ericceae - Heath family

Along Moose-skull lake, North of Mendenhall subdivision
July 31 2009

Fire Tower Mountain, right above the tree-line, July 27 2009

The berry at least 1cm long.
Hmmmm i still think that there is more than one species of blueberries around here, this one just above the tree line.
This one in the photo definitely a crawling plant, very close to the ground.
According to the books the same species.

Vaccinium - It's Latin name
uliginosum - of wet or marshy areas
