Cloudberries

What is a cloudberry?

Cloudberries are a rare and delicious find around Tok, just like our cabin!

 

Cloudberry flower.  Cloudberries are rare in Tok, AlaskaCloudberries have a raspberry-like leaf, but grow low to the forest floor in sunny boggy areas with acidic soil.  Tok’s soil is an ancient rocky river bed, and is very well drained, so more cloudberries are found south of Tok along the Tok Cutoff Highway.
