We were looking forward to the tour...but had to be satisfied with peeking in windows, since there was no one around. We'll be back for the guided tour sometime soon!
We took the scenic route home and passed by acres and acres of nursery stock and greenhouses. Once again...you see my favorite mountain peak in the background. Mt. Cheam is in the northernmost part of the Cascade mountain range (elevation 6929 feet)...and dominates the skyline of the eastern Fraser Valley.
As you can see, there is still plenty of snow on the mountains. I always laugh at hubby's story that as a child he wasn't allowed to have ice-cream until all the snow had disappeared from Mt. Cheam. I'm thinking it would have been a pretty short ice-cream season some years! The last time I hiked Mt. Cheam we slid down snowy slopes near the summit in August...and by the end of September the snow could be falling once again.
He can count himself lucky that he is no longer under those rules...or he would still be waiting for his cone. As it is...he has ice-cream whenever he so desires. Ah...what freedom we enjoy!
Have a wonderful day...
