An Autumn Outing

Today was an idyllic autumn day – puffy white clouds, crisp, blustery wind, and not a drop of rain in sight. We celebrated the season with a trip to Treworgy Orchards in Levant, Maine, just Northwest of Bangor.

This is a destination farm. There’s the orchard with Cortland and McIntosh apples ready for picking, a pumpkin patch worthy of Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin, an amazing corn maze, hay rides, goats to feed and pet, and live music from Perpetual e-Motion to top it all off (I bought the CD). The place has the feeling of a festival. We played, we walked, we ate, and came home with apples. After taking 120 pictures, here are some of the highlights.
