And even better, the the pick your own fields at Ricker Hill are dog-friendly, so we took Steinbeck along for his first apple picking adventure.
Steinbeck wasn't really into the apples, and he definitely wasn't into the slingshot.
But he did enjoy the wagon ride, and was very interested in the porcupine we wouldn't let him within twenty feet of.
As for the people, we got a beautiful crisp fall day, great views, a chubby pumpkin and half a peck of delicious apples.
See ya next year Ricker Hill!
