DID YOU KNOW?
- the bark of the aspen tree is your backup plan if you run out of sunscreen… it’s spf 5!
- reindeer lichen is a coagulant if you don’t have gauze, packing or bandaids on the trail!
- mint leaves, dandelions and violets are a good source of vitamins if you run out of snacks!
- conifer needles make for great a tea flavor if you’re thirsty or it’s cold out!
PLEASE do not try any of the above if you are not absolutely positive what you are touching, eating or drinking! Some plants may not be what you think they are (and even be poisonous or deadly), so be careful out there!
