October map quiz

2013 october map quiz

Back by popular demand: A map quiz.*

Can you guess what's responsible for the pattern in the Capital Region map above?

Answer's after the jump.

Keep scrolling for the answer.

And the answer is: orchards for pick-your-own apples.

We'll pulled that map from our listing map of pick-your-own apple orchards in the Capital Region. (The listing is probably not comprehensive, but it covers most of the spots -- if you know of one that should be one there, please let us know.)

* And by "popular demand," we mean Jason. But, like Jason, we also think it's a fun thing to post now and then. If you have a suggestion for one, email us -- we might be able to work it out.

Earlier on AOA: You're bound to come across one, eventually


Hah, I got it! You should delay the answer so we can compete for a prize. A dozen cider donuts would do just fine.

We picked apples at Philips Orchard on Rt. 9H in Claverack on Saturday. It was glorious! Plenty of apples, plenty of varieties. No crowds.

I said to myself, what does Altamont have two of that isn't anywhere else close by? Orchards....

Thank you! I feel so honored.

Say Something!

I just learned about the Woman's Club of Albany yesterday, during the Holiday House tour. It's a really large space that is chock full of character, and they rent it out for parties of the type Maureen is interested in.
