BBY007 :: Unknown shrub

Possibly Gaylussacia baccata or Vaccinium membranaceum (black huckleberry). However, one thing that has me questioning that possibility is that the leaves on my observed plant are not alternating. I don’t have enough photos from the summer to look at other parts of the plant. Really, seeing the buds and flowers come out in the spring would help tremendously to identify it. With my currently plan of drawing each observed species in the order I found them, I’m stuck with the material I gathered at the time.

Specimen recorded July 24, 2020, 18:14 across the trail from the willow tree (006).
