Apple Picking At Skytop

As the family and I prepare for our move, we're getting in some last-minute sentimental fun. Many's been the time the wife and kids went with their homeschooling co-ops or just their friends to pick apples at Skytop Orchards in Flat Rock, NC.

Since I'd never been we decided to make a family outing. The view from the top is gorgeous. The photo below only hints at how beautiful and crisp and fresh everything feels up there.

We bought over a bushel of apples, and ate them all in three days. Well, almost all of them. A couple of apple crumbles made it onto our table first.

These two boys had birthdays that week. Cider slushees all around.
