So, you think you're Les Stroud?

Collected here find a guide to what's edible in the mountains, with emphasis on plants and fungi. Please don't submit photos of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, or amphibians (too obvious), but if you've got a photo of some particularly yummy insect, feel free to share.

Please submit photos showing the edible parts, not just the prettiest parts.

Where something is edible only after cooking or other processing, or edible but likely to cause stomach upset, I include it anyway. Note that many plants are considered "edible" because eating them won't do any serious harm, not because they are nutritious. Also, don't eat anything unless you're certain you know exactly what it is. This goes double for mushrooms. You have been warned!

Re: great page

Thanks for the appreciation. Luckily we can survive a long time without any food at all. A lot of this stuff doesn't have any calories to speak of, but eating it does make us feel a little better.

Re: Yo

So far this year I've found lots of yummy snow :)

Actually I also found plenty of bark and spruce needles, but I, uh, haven't had time to stop and cook it properly. Yeah, that's right.
