Since we seem to be on a roll with fun events lately, I thought we’d try something different. I’m going to rent a 12-passenger van and take a group of folks to the Sierra foothills town of Camino, California, better known as Apple Hill
We’ll meet at Cafe Flore, located at the Northeast corner of Market and Noe Streets at 10am, and proceed from there to Apple Hill, where we’ll take in the Autumn Colors, check out the apple harvest, sample all the apple wares, and if you want, we’ll visit a Christmas Tree farm or two. There are tons of different varieties of apples grown, as well as pears and other fruits, crafts, foods made from the locally produced fruit – cider, jams, pies, cakes, syrups, all sorts of yummy goodness. There are also a few wineries up there and we may make a stop at one of those as well.
I am charging a small fee of $20 for this Stairway Walk to cover the expense of renting the van, fuel, insurance, bridge tolls, etc. Once we get there, we’ll have three or four hours to explore before we hop in the van and head back to the city. Depending on traffic conditions, we may detour through the Altamont Pass or via CA-160 through the delta to save time. Expect to arrive back in San Francisco between 8:30 and 9:30pm.
