Apple picking and train watching

In October we took a drive to Tehachapi to pick apples. We went to two farms. The first one was...well rustic is a good adjective. We walked out to the trees and picked apples. There were only two kinds from which to choose.

Then we went to a more refined apple farm. They had all the apples picked for you. The bins of apples were labeled by variety with many varieties from which to choose. They even had samples of their wonderful apple cider. Yummy.
There was a pumpkin patch there. Jeremiah picked out his very own.

We left Tehachapi and headed for Keene to see the famous Tehachapi Loop... one of the wonders of the train world. Papa had his radio that he uses for his railroad job. Here's a picture of Banna "using" it to get info on when the next train was heading our way. (She didn't really use it.)

We waited about half an hour and the train came. You can see the train loop around itself in the following pictures.

We went a little closer and saw this train. Pretty cool pictures, huh!

Afterwards we stopped by the little Keene restaurant and had lunch. Then we went our seperate ways and went home...with lots of apples and great memories. What a fun day!



That looks super fun! And what a neat account of your trip. You should print it out to keep in a journal or something for Jeremiah! :) I love apples. I eat like four a day when we have them (another random fact you didn't need to know about me! I'm full of 'em!)
