Apple Orchards and Fall

We've been on several outings to area apple orchards lately. Great places to visit and have a quiet snack. Most orchards are family owned and they really appreciate the business. Plus you can purchase a little something to take home or pass on to friends and neighbors. Trees are starting to turn color now....they are absolutely beautiful!

No...not to Vegas....just west on US 50...it connects us with civilization across the river in Indiana. As much as I would like to attend the retreat, I just can't get away from school that long this time of year.

We've stopped at a lot of road side places/apple orchard types. Ma, NH, Vt, still pasteurized.

Only one place (haven't been there since last year) in Ipswich, Ma that had unpasteurized

Like the pic of your slk. I especially like the fact the body style has remained the same for the most part such that my 06 looks alot like your 09! Appears only the lower front facia has subtle changes from year to year. Of course, yours has the bigger v6. My 280 has all the power I need, though.
