What's a better activity in the fall than apple picking?
Okay, actually, eating apple cider doughnuts is probably the best way to spend a fall day...
But! Going apple picking is definitely a close second and a great way to mark the fall.
Since we're well into November, it might be difficult to find places where you can still pick your own, but apple orchards often have bags of fresh picked for purchase, baked goods and other farm produce you can fill up on.
If you're in the northern Lake George or southern Lake Champlain area — Gunnison Orchards is the place to go.
Grab a bag, pick your row, and fill it up.
This year it's been obviously more difficult to find fun and safe activities, but apple picking isn't really something where you're packed in with a bunch of other people. You can easily find a row all to yourself, you're outdoors, and no one's touching your apples except you.
Now, we did luck out by showing up closer to their closing time, which meant fewer people (and we wore masks while inside the shop or near other people).
If you're looking for some fall fun while it's still mild outside, apple picking at a local farm is a great change of pace and you get to eat your work — now that is an apple-solutely great way to spend a fall day!
