In the District of Saanich, part of Greater Victoria, it’s common to find people at the top of Mount Tolmie, waiting for the sunset. You can easily reach this local mountain by driving up a windy road called Mayfair Drive or by climbing gravel trails.

So, since this week’s photo challenge through the Daily Post is to share something “Cheeky,” here’s my cheeky photo of an “I-bet-our-weather-is-better-than-yours” sunset on Dallas Road in Victoria, BC.
