Sara has Sundays off and brought up a trip the pumpkin patch. Normally, we would go later in the season, but we are going to be in the Caribbean for 12 days, returning RIGHT before Halloween with no time left to do a pumpkin patch.
So we decided to make a whole event of it and travel for the first time since I was in second grade up to Oak Glen in Yucaipa. We tried to go up last fall, but missed the season by a couple of weeks... so this year, we got an earlier jump.
Apple picking season had just started. The weather had cooled a little (it was 80 instead of 100!). The crowds were ready to descend on "apple land" as Deevs called it.
We left at about 9:30 and got there by 11:00 after a wrong turn and a bit of a detour. We found the kitschy little village and various orchards and farms. We had decided on Los Rios, so we found it and parked. We decided we needed to find the restrooms and eat so we were energized and ready for pumpkin picking, apple picking, and raspberry picking.
