Cider Mill & Apple Picking in California

Monday, October 24, 2016

Now that it's fall, I really miss the East Coast more than ever. Sweater weather, crisp air, and changing leaves don't really exist in SoCal. But that doesn't mean there's not a to enjoy a slice of autumn - you just have to drive two hours outside of Los Angeles to Oak Glen, California.

If you're in Southern California and are craving the fall experience, I can't recommend taking this day trip enough! It was exactly what I needed.

We spent most of the day picking apples and throwing tomahawks at Ridley's Apple Farm, then continued on down the road for hot, fresh donuts and apple cider at Snow Line Orchard and Cider Mill. Ridley's has an old-fashioned feel to it, with colonial-style buildings, and a general store full of homemade fruit butters. Snow Line is the type of orchard I'm used to from back East, and it really transported me for a minute. They also have cider, wine and beer tasting and BBQ on site.

Here's some 35mm shots from the day, mixed in with a couple iphone ones.
