Celebrate the season with some classic autumn activities. Take a hayride, sip some cider, or get lost in a corn maze. Whatever you do, enjoy the falling leaves and the cool Pacific Northwest breeze.
■ At Gordon Skagit Farms in Mount Vernon, you can buy a wreath, drink warm cider, solve a corn maze, and explore their haunted barn the first weekend of October.
■ The Cloud Mountain Farm Center is hosting a Fall Fruit Festival on October 5 and 6. There’ll be more than 200 types of fresh fruits and veggies, cider pressing, live music, and caramel apples.
■ On October 26 and 27, the horrifying and legendary haunted hayride at Orcas Island’s Camp Orkila is sure to be frightfully fun. Those who prefer less scary activities can enjoy pumpkin carving and archery.
■ Pick your own apples and pumpkins at Bellewood Acres, which is open daily through October. There’s a corn maze, train tour, and fresh apple cider—need we say more?
