Apple Picking in Western North Carolina

What a gorgeous weekend, and Columbus Day. I spent it picking apples with my dear friends the Mountcastles (including dog Woody) at the Stepp Family Orchard in Edneyville, N.C. It was an incredible day: October-blue skies, bright sun, and apples of all kinds: Gala, Mutsu, Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Crispin, Arkansas Black, Granny Smith, and more!

We filled our baskets to the brim, fed the neighbor's horses, and took plenty of photos. I loved spending the day, most especially, with Hardy and Heyden Mountcastle, the two coolest boys I know.
