Yates Cider Mill

One of the best parts of having your birthday in October is having an excuse to partake in all the best fall activities. My number one favorite: cider mills. Sugary donuts and gallons of cider. What’s not to love?DSCN2258At Yates, there’s a fantastic mile long path you can stroll through on the side of the mill (perfect excuse to eat an extra donut . . . or ten).

You pass along a stream and through the woods with the noise of the world around you completely blocked out, making you feel like a true adventurer.DSCN2218

Lupin was in Heaven, a ton of plants to investigate, leaves blowing in the wind and little frogs to chase.

The longer you walk, the greater your cravings for donuts grows.

Just when you think you’re going to go full-on Hulk and smash your way through the trees to reach the store, you resurface into civilization. Civilization with cider.
