As the weather turns cold and grey, and rain mists down from the heavens with an occasional "mood flake" mixed in, it's hard not to find one's mind turning back to the joys of summer. I find my mind being drawn to one morning in particular when we had a decision to make: hike to the Lake Agnes Tea House or the tea house at The Plain of Six Glaciers?
It's the Lake Agnes Tea House that gets most the attention, but Linda read something somewhere about Six Glaciers that made us think that might be the better choice. But how to decide? Fortunately we ran into a delightful you woman who gave us the inside scoop. A groundskeeper hard at work changing out trash bags, she told us that Six Plains had chocolate cake. That was enough for us.
Here is the greeting committee.
And here is the kitchen, where everything is being baked from scratch.
Like these pies kept warm on a wood burning stove...
We couldn't resist.
Afterwards Linda made a friend.
They were sort of like chipmunks on steroids.
Then it was time for the next leg of our journey, up closer to the glaciers themselves.
After that we returned to the tea house once again for... you guessed it... chocolate cake!
