I had my first can o peaches on the summit of Mt. Rainier back in 1997. After I asked a local woman at a Sea-Tac information kiosk for one piece of advice about the climb, her reply was simple. “Go buy yourself a can o peaches. It’s the sweetest reward you’ll ever taste on top of a mountain.” She was speaking from experience. A few days later I found myself on the summit of Mt. Rainier with my own can o peaches giving thanks to this kind woman for her sage advice.
For years, I told that story before learning the true meaning of the peaches. Today, I realize that regardless of reaching any summit, the adventure is the can o peaches. Exploring nature and discovering its beauty while achieving self growth is the true reward. The peaches symbolize those sweet rewards, and they taste even sweeter when shared.
