Last Monday Pat and I and the girls headed south on the very windy Hwy 49 to Placerville to visit Apple Hill. Made up of more than 50 ranches, there is everything apple as well as wineries and Christmas tree farms. We had never been so we thought it was high time we got over there.
We were armed with only a guide book included in the Reno Gazette Journal newspaper and the various descriptions of each ranch. Our first stop was at Abel's Apple Acres. Being a Monday (one perk of a firefighter's schedule) there was no crowd and we were able to browse freely. A nice little gift shop helped me get started on some Christmas shopping.
Enjoying apple struedel
After the long drive there we were hungry of course so what to start with. Something apple!! We decided on the apple struedel and were not disappointed. Afterwards the girls were able to run around in the field a bit.
This one's for you Aunt Anne
Shoulda had the pulled pork
