Moving up the ladder

There's something about climbing up a ladder that adds to the pleasure of apple picking. A few things distinguish this orchard from others I've visited: taller apple trees, ladders to reach their upper branches, and a long winding road running down hrough the beautiful scenery of Caledon. The biggest part of Albion Orchard is hidden by a hill. Up the hill, we observed an intriguing little graveyard under the shadow of a large tree, where the likes of A. Lawyer, I. M. Gone and Lou Zer were buried... Going downhill, we took in the panorama of the white road contrasting with the greenery of the apple trees and the pumpkin field. Small red wagons to carry the apples were waiting for us. The tricky part is to leave before the kids run out of energy, because you still need to go back up and down the hill to your starting point. On the weekends, a wagon ride can take you to the orchards.
