Altapass apples

A pit-stop, as is said in some quarters, enjoying the pretty decorations of the ladies' stalls.

Apples, sold a peck at a time, which are raised right here on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Various other apple products, as well as lots of other fruity jams and sauces.

While waiting in line, we perched our peck of apples as part of the display.

Helen was promoting my entering the photo contest.

The winner of the photo contest could have a hay ride...like the one arriving here at bottom of hill.
I don't know who certifies these roadside farm markets, but I saw several such signs throughout the area.

Looking down from the parkway, those are apple trees.

A very old tree, which may not be bearing much fruit any more.
Ah ha, caught the picture taker in the mirror.


  1. Great scenery - and I bet those apples are delicious!!

    1. There is nothing in the world better than a fresh apple that has been picked within the week...unless you take it right off the tree maybe!
