We have started a new tradition in our family and that is Apple Hill. Last year we took grandma Lexie with us and ate a delicious barbecue lunch with kids. This year grandma was out of town and we decided to take a fun drive through Apple Hill during the week. Which was a fantastic idea because each orchard was desolate! In the past there is usually a line out the door for apple cider donuts. This year we were able to walk up and they made them right then and there for us. We have a few favorite Orchards on Apple Hill. We always stop at Rainbow Orchard first. That's where you can get the donuts made fresh and warm. Apple Ridge is where you can get the apple dumplings with caramel sauce. And last but not least High Hill. At High Hill you can grab an apple cider donut decorated with frosting and delicious toppings. Honestly, there are over a 100 places to stop on Apple Hill. Since we had gone during the week not many of the orchards were open. But there were no crowds and we find that worth it! Before you start to scroll down I just want to apologize about the abundance of photos:

A nice little hike through the fall leaves and Christmas trees:
We took home a box full of pink ladies:
Solin is in her counting stage. She looked at all of these apples and said 1,2,3,4,5,7,6,8,9 and 10! Almost!
I would love to carry this tradition into Christmas. They have so many beautiful Christmas Tree farms in this area.
