I had left for vacation just days before Rainier cherries were to be ripe in the area. After returning I stopped off at the Cherry Chalet in Kennewick to purchase some, not realizing they had already sold out. I interrupted the owner as they had obviously just returned from a bike ride, and he gave me the last few pounds of cherries that he had saved for his family.
Thank you Steve Sauer and Cherry Chalet Bed and Breakfast.
