  1. Beautiful shot! I believe this is Gaultheria Shallon, or Salal. The berries are edible as well. From Wiki:

    Its dark blue “berries” (actually swollen sepals)[1] and young leaves are both edible and are efficient appetite suppressants, both with a unique flavor. Gaultheria shallon berries were a significant food resource for native people, who both ate them fresh and dried them into cakes. They were also used as a sweetener, and the Haida used them to thicken salmon eggs. The leaves of the plant were also sometimes used to flavor fish soup.[1]
