One year we decided to experience apple picking in Oak Glen. It was late October. In California this is when it begins to cool down before the winter rains. So what better time for a New York transplant to bring back memories of autumn than to experience the foothills of the Los Angeles area.
We made reservation at a Bed and Breakfast for 2 nights, and planned to tour the many apple ranches along the route. The Saturday and Sunday we visited could not have been more like autumn. Cool, crisp air greeted us along with crunching leaves and apples galore for picking. We climbed ladders and picked the crisp apples to bring back home. We also stopped at various ranches and bought bags of picked apples, apple cider, apple butter and of course a slice of fresh apple pie, hot out of the oven.
Oh...the memories of childhood…some never dim!
Below is a site that lists apple picking cross the US. This is a wonderful time of year to build family memories.
