We went to Julian to go apple picking, but unfortunately the crop this year was pretty low. Many of the orchards have either closed for the season or did not open at all due to low yield. There are a few places still open for the season. We went to Raven Hill Orchard and the trees were pretty bare but we found some good ones on the ground and got to fill our bags full from a box that the orchard had harvested. If you are thinking of going to pick apples - go now! If you don't care about picking your own apples, don't worry, there are plenty to be had in the shops around town.
