Carmel Apples & Apple Butter

After a disappointing trip to a flea market last weekend, hubby and I ended up in an area named "Glen Oak" in the local San Bernardino mountains.
It's an apple orchard area that we had visited many years ago and thought it might be fun to go see what was happening there.
It is about 4,000 ft. in altitude, so it was much chillier than at home and were we surprised! The area was loaded with people and they had hay rides, tractor pull rides and horse drawn wagon rides......it was a Harvest festival of sorts.
You could pick your own pumpkins and apples and they had mouth-watering pies and all sorts of goodies baking.
We only ended up with freshly made apple butter and a couple of carmel apples that were supposed to have nuts on them.......but they ran out of nuts!
I think we'll return soon and I'll bring a warmer jacket and the camera!

Thanks for visiting me and comments are appreciated.
