Carter Mountain sits outside Charlottesville, Virginia. At the top of the mountain is the home of the Carter Mountain Orchard, Chiles Peach Orchard, and Spring Valley Orchard. A proverbial "Disney World" of orchards. Because our visit occured in October, we found ourselves in a world of apples and pumpkins. Apple picking, apple cider, apple fritters, apples, apples, and more apples. The pumpkins held their own... little pumpkins, big pumpkins, green pumpkins, white pumpkins, and ugly pumpkins. Add hey rides, food, and live music into the mix, and well, you have Carter Mountain. Cool. For more information about Carter Mountain, click HERE.
