Fall has always been a favorite time of year in the  Sierra Foothills. From the apple pies in Apple Hill to the glorious wines at the many tasting rooms in the Fairplay viticulture area, you owe it to yourself to take a leisurely drive up hwy 50 . Mother Nature has on her best dress. While you are at it check out the face life given to Ol Placerville. The town has gone through and amazing change. The food is great and the quaint little shops are full of tempting displays.
