With temps forcast a tad cooler beginning tomorrow, my thoughts are occupied with visions of one of my favorite autumn places.
As one drives east along highway 50, this time of year, there is a special place cradled in the arms of the Sierra Foothills which comes alive this time of year. In Fall when fruit comes into harvest, and the cider is pressed, Apple Hill provides delight for all.
Originally, Apple Hill was a collection of approximately 16 ranches or orchards. Today it boasts more than 50 ranches including Christmas tree growers, wineries, a micro-brewery, Spa, vineyards, and pumpkin patches.
Apple Hill is located in El Dorado County - approximately 4 miles east of Placerville. There is easy access from highway 50.

Plan a picnic on the beautiful land that spreads her colorful leaves this time of year.
