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!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.

When I was a new mom I tried lots of different activities. My two favorites were the public library programming. There are a ton of story hours in the area. You could hit one every day of the week and you see a lot of familiar faces after a few weeks and get to know the other parents. They are at a variety of times which helped for the constantly changing nap schedule. ...
