Late October we headed to the Gold Country in the Sierra Foothills to visit Apple Hill during the annual apple harvest. We stayed close to Placerville at the KOA. It has a nice park with a very rural feel to it.
Lucy loved the walks, as she could encounter goats, geese, and horses along the way. She was really intrigued by the different animals and wasn’t sure what she should do.
Apple Hill is the largest concentration of apple farms in California, and there are over 50 different farms you can visit during your stay.
They grow practically every apple known to man, and you can enjoy them in pies, fresh cider, and even donuts!
We also visited the nearby town of Placerville, which was a booming town during the Gold Rush. It has some good coffee houses and restaurants, and is a nice way to spend an afternoon.
We had a good time at Apple Hill in the foothills, and we are looking forward to heading back to the beach next month!
