Out Door Wednesday Camino California, Apple Hill

Last Thursday my husband and I took an hour drive and went to Apple Hill in Camino California, this is off HWY 50, on the way to Lake Tahoe. Want to learn more about Northern California's popular Apple Hill? click here. We've been many times before. It's a very pretty spot in the mountains just past Placerville, California where a lot of apple growers live and sell their apples and wares.

Out Door Wednesday is hosted by Susan at A Southern Day Dreamer. Thanks Susan for hosting this fun event.

It was fun to see all the shiny delicious apples, and scenery. We had a nice day and brought our two pups with us, Edie pronounced E-DEE and Effie, they are both girls. We, okay I dressed them up in a cute Halloween Collar with bells.

To see things the way we see them in a larger photo, click here to view slide show of Sutter's Mill.

Sutter's Mill, James W. Marshall discovered gold in 1848 on the South Fork of the American River in the valley the Nisenan Indians knew as Cullumah. Want to read more about the Gold Rush in California, click here. Visitors have the opportunity to try panning for gold in the American River and enjoy hikes and picnics under the riparian oak woodlands. Overlooking the beautiful river canyon, where the gold discoverer rests today, see California's first historic monument, the statue of James Marshall pointing at his gold discovery site .

Happy Out Door Wednesday! ~Kat

  5. What a wonderful trip. Those apples look delicious, I swear I can almost smell them! And your pups are adorable! Wish you lived closer, we are having a costume contest for our patients (work for a vet). These babies would definitely be in the running! Kathy

  6. Hello there, Kat! Your pictures are gorgeous! Those apples look so good. And, I love the pictures of your dogs. They are so cute!

    Also, you asked me what you put in a household notebook. You use a three ring binder and have different sections in it. Like one for all the emergency numbers you may need...one for a list of medications each family members takes...a cleaning schedule, etc. I think I will do a post on my household notebook and you can see what I have done. It's really nice to have everything at your fingertips when you need it, and not having to go searching for it all over the house---especially in an emergency. This is also a good place to keep order out menus from restaurants, etc. I will come back and let you know when I have posted on it. Have a terrific day!!! Karen

  7. I like your rose photograph the best. Looks like you had a fun day.
