Silver Creek and Apples

Apple Picking
Yesterday Laura and I decided to knock out a couple of Fall activities. We are in the middle of Summit County Metro Park's Fall Hiking Spree so we decided to go for a hike at the beautiful Silver Creek Metro Park. Silver creek is a great place to enjoy the fall color - we also had fun nerding out with all of the tree identification signs along the trail. After the hike we drove to the nearby Rittman Orchards - which we had never been to before. You can pick your own apples there, but we opted to pick them out of the apple bins in the market(the above photo is staged). They also had a wide selection of other fall goodies and produce at reasonable prices - definitely somewhere we will be returning too. The light wasn't that great for photography but the views from the orchard were very pretty as it sits up on a hill overlooking a pond, farm fields, and fall foliage in the distance.
