  Helen started doing some research and found a farm that has grown to attraction size - Desert Hills Ranch Farm Market.  North of here, we didn't see much fruit for sale.  At Cache creek we started seeing farm stands, but Desert Hills took "farm stand" to a whole new level.  We bought a large box of apricots to share with neighbors when we got home.  They had a large ice cream counter.

As we drove back to Vancouver we saw Bighorn sheep at the side of the road.

We safely pulled over and noticed there were quite a few more sheep in the hills just off the road.

This looks like a family of moms with babies - I didn't see a single male in the group.  The highway cuts between the river and mountain and I suspect the sheep like the greener plants near the water.
