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?

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.

Thank you! I feel so honored.
