An apple orchard? On a mountain top?

21 Nov

Anna Wonson is in town which means fun central!!! We decided to go to a apple orchard yesterday to go picking and to drink cider and eat apple cider doughnuts. This proved harder than we expected. We called and “iphoned” for about an hour until we finally decided to just take the hour and a half hike to what seemed like the closest orchard we could find, Carter Mountain Orchard. We followed signs of apples and pumpkins up a windy rocky road (no, not the ice cream), to the top of a mountain that was covered with vineyards and apple trees as far as the eye could see. There were wonderful blue mountains in every direction and the sun was getting low on the horizon.
After eating our fair share of doughnuts and we picked out 20lb pumpkins to bring home and carve. These pumpkins are double the size of my child! Needless to say, I was freaking excited!!!!!! …… So we got home late and carved pumpkins, made pumpkin seeds and ate warm apple pie. I love you fall.
