Blueberries are gone, because that is a burnt field in the fall.

Last time I saw swathes of colour like that, it was driving across Mt Rainier National Park in autumn........ but I doubt that is where your pic is, as it appears too flat, with no sign of the famous Volcano in the background.

Rainier is also beautiful when the wildflowers come out in spring.

Ah, hell, it's always beautiful.

That has nothing to do with this blueberry field on the end of its prune year. It'll be full o berries come next summer. Ye will have to wait til then to cure the scurvy.

Close but not close enough.  Blueberries for Sal was set in my hometown...I've eaten many a blueberry off of blueberry hill.

  Your sense of doubt is spot on...wrong side of the country.

Sal is a real person, too.  I've never met her but I worked with the author's son, either her son or nephew, I forget, at a marina for a few years in high school.

Very close...but not quite.  Hancock accounts for about 10% of production...this county accounts for pretty much the rest.

yep...the blueberry barrens of Washington County, Maine.  Nick can tell you all the rest, because I'm guessing this is where a large part of his blueberry hunting took place.
