mt. boucherie

after we got off the bus to our next destination, we headed over to mount boucherie, mount Boucherie is a mountain and it is a former stravolcano created nearly 60 million years ago. Between four and six different glacial periods over the past 50 million years have eroded the volcano to produce Mount Boucherie. Though it now only rises 417 metres above the nearby lake level, it is estimated to once have had an elevation of 2,000 m or more.
