Mt Cheam - Late Summer
Over the past 20 years, my sister has lived in Deroche, so there were endless possibilities for photos along the way while driving from our place in Abbotsford.
Having just returned from a driving trip through the Rockies, my daughters were in no way interested in coming with me one late-August evening, to “chase a stupid sunset.”I’m thinking bonding, they’re thinking “Boring”. With a Dairy Queen bribe tacked onto the end, off we went.
I started taking photos of the 2 spectacular shapes that make up what we generally think of as Cheam—it is actually a combination of the sharp peak of Cheam to the left, and Lady Peak, the more angular, boxy shape to the right. Over a period of an hour, I moved up to the location of this scene, about 15 minutes east of Hatzic Lake, along Highway #7.
The girls got their ice cream and I got my painting…but I still miss that barn.
