The Door To Gopher Glen In October

I looked North yesterday afternoon and saw the sky turning a dark blue black color. The sun was gone. And I was cold. It has been in the 90's here the past few days, so every morning we get up, put on our shorts and t - shirts, slip into our flip flops and head out the door. So yesterday was no different. I just figured we were in Indian Summer around here...even though, secretly I don't like it. Everyone else seems to like it. So I just smile and say, "Oh, yes, we are so lucky." So as the temperature sank and my mood rose, I knew a trip to See Canyon was the goal of the day. John and I got Buddy and loaded up in the car. We made our way through See Canyon, watching the yellow leaves of the apple trees swirl in the cold October sun. The air was damp and smelled of apples and leaves.

When we got to Gophen Glen .... we were greeted with rain. As the rain began we ran inside to check the board for the "Apples of the Day." Heavenscent, Turley Winesap and Limbertwig were the ones we got. We got back into the car the conversation turned to one of my favorite topics...Thanksgiving Pie. Should we make pumpkin or pecan or apple. Definelty apple..if for nothing else than an excuse to go to Gopher Glen on Thanksgiving Eve.


  1. Wow! This place looks amazing. And you made my day by telling me there are apple sorts called Turley Winesap and Limbertwig! Sounds like something out of Hobbiton.
    I have yet to meet Jamie in person but we're in touch through twitter and his website where I have a food blog; he is amazing. So little ego compared to his huge talent.
    xo thanks for the lovely pumpkin pics!!!

  2. Limbertwig? Thats a new/old one?
    Maybe Friday is our gopher glen day,

  7. 90's? Yikes! But the apples, I appreciate. I'm sure they are amazingly tasty. I can tell just by their names. :)

  8. Oh how I miss Gopher glen!!! See canyon is one thing about CAlif that I love so much...it is just a part of "home"!! Limbertwig is one I haven't heard of either...sounds great!! I am baking apple pie today too.
