Blueberry bushes flower in early June during black fly season, which is perfect because the flies pollinate the blooms. Given adequate regular rain, berries ripen and you may be treated to one as early as the 4th of July right through Labor Day, but the bulk of the season is mid-July to mid-August.
Not sure where to look? Stop by the Tofte [7355 Hwy 61, Tofte, MN 55615] or Gunflint Ranger [ 2020 W Hwy 61, Grand Marais, MN 55604] Stations and ask for suggestions, but don’t expect anyone to give away their secret spot!

New moon nights – night when the moon is absent from the sky – make for great stargazing.
Here’s a great way to start – look due north after the sun has set and find the Big Dipper constellation [see photo] with its telltale 3-star handle and 4-star dipper.
In the summer, the dipper is at ‘9-o’clock’ and hangs dipper down.
In the autumn, the dipper is at ‘6-o’clock’ with the dipper facing up/handle to the left.
In the winter, the dipper is at ‘3-o’clock’ with the handle hanging down.
In the spring, the dipper is at ’12-o’clock’ with the dipper facing down/handle to the right.
