Apple Days – Pie, History and Tour!

Here is more info for you about Apple Days.

Another addition is an fun booth with Palomar Historian, Barbara Waite. Her Great Grandparents first came to Palomar in a horse-drawn wagon. It was a 5 day trip from Long Beach! Barb has published her grandmother Elsie’s delightful journal. It became two enchanting books with tales of her days as a much-loved teacher in a one-room school house, falling in love and eventually calling Palomar her home. Her family planted those vintage apple orchards you see driving along State Park Road. Be sure to stop at Barb’s booth as she will be sharing some wonderful stories of days gone by.

Ohmygoodness! I see Barb just had her 350th review of her first book, today!!! How fun is that! She has written 3 books now and you can see more about them and order through this link: Barb’s Books

Here is the info for the Orchard Tours:

From: William Meyst <>
We meet at the park entrance for the Orchard Tours, where the big wooden sign says “Palomar Mountain State Park.” Parking is free there, and I’ll be set up with a small booth and pretty much take folks out there as they come along throughout that 1 to 4 time block. The tours will not be long, so I’m going to encourage people to either wait for me to return or just head on out onto Scott’s Cabin Trail where they can meet up with us in the orchard. All this will be posted at my little station at the park entrance for folks to see as they arrive.
