WOW! WHAT A WEEKEND.
Saturday at the Manton Apple Festival was a lovely day for a carriage ride. Geoffrey and I hopped on in the far back seat and enjoyed the ride round the assorted vendors located in the inside grass area of the school track. This was the view from our back seat with the other occupants enjoying the cool mid morning temperatures on a lovely autumn day.
And if you look close enough to this photo below you can see in the distance just to the right of the carriage post the Black Butte and our homestead is on the north side of the Butte out of sight.
There were vendors aplenty. Everything from apple burritos, apple cobbler cooked in cast iron dutch ovens over coals , jams , jellies, soaps, fiber and more.
This photo is on display in the classroom. Sadly there is no information about the age of it nor which tribe this young mother and child were part of.
The plaque below gives a bit of history of the school system and the people who were part of Manton in the days gone by.
We ended our morning at the festival in one the tents listening to some wonderful Bluegrass bands.
