This weekend we took a fall-themed day trip to Apple Hill with our friend Erin. Apple Hill is a community of apple farms two hours outside of the Bay Area. My family used to visit Apple Hill to pick apples and return at Christmas to pick out a tree. Yesterday, we picked our own apples in a small organic orchard. The experience was lots of fun and a lovely way to spend a fall day. Nick took care of the apple picking while Erin and I collected our "harvest."

After apple-picking, we did a little mid-morning wine tasting and then found ourselves at a local hamburger stand for fries, shakes, and other tasty food:
A perfect fall day!
