Fall to me is all about the different smells, tastes, colors, and traditions.
Apple picking, cinnamon, pumpkin lattes, and those brightly colored maples. Recently when we passed through Vermont we decided we wanted to find a pick-your-own apple orchard and [attempt] to make an apple pie in our little camper van kitchen.After a little research we stumbled upon Shelburne Orchards in Shelburne, VT. Located a few minutes south of Burlington, this apple orchard provided the quintessential New England fall experience. Apple cider donuts, hot and cold apple cider, and views of the mountains just across Lake Champlain were the recipe for a perfect day. We spent the afternoon exploring the grounds and relaxing in the crisp autumn air on the side of the hill next to the orchards. We spent a while there watching the clouds play on the mountains across the lake. The day was simple but it was so perfect!Keep reading to see all of our adventures from the day....To get into the orchard you walk through this little door labeled "Apple Room". Walking through it felt like walking into Narnia!Right behind the "Apple Room" door was this perfect little picnic table. Seriously, I could sit here for hours snacking on apple cider donuts and reading a good book.Considering the donuts were only $1 each, I'm really proud that we reigned it in at one a piece. They were fresh and delicious and, in hind site, we should have taken a couple for the next morning!
