These attractive berries have been abundant everywhere we’ve hiked in northern Colorado and southern Wyoming recently. They look tasty, but most of them have a strong astringent flavor. The seeds and leaves can be mildly toxic and shouldn’t be eaten. Dried, the berries were a distinctive ingredient of pemmican.

Chokecherries, of course. I used to make the most wonderful pancake syrup from them. Jelly too. mmmmmmmm.
Of course, an easy one. Prunus Virginiana.
