On October 9th , core members of the JHU DC Chinese Students and Scholars Association and their friends celebrated the fall season with a quintessential American activity: they went apple picking on Gaver Farm. The wind was blowing hard and temperatures were chilly, but it didn’t dampen our high spirits to have a nice outing with our big family, JHU DC CSSA.

Upon arriving at Gaver Farm, we took a ride on the tractor and started with the apple-picking. Many took selfies at the farm and then started picking apples. Some of the participants quickly worked out the best way to pick the sweetest and best-looking apples, the ones who face the sun. At the end, we all had full bags of apples with our hard work.

After the apple picking, the group played in the maze and enjoyed all the fun that the festival provides. The weather turned better and for the rest of the day, the sun was shining brightly. And we were all excited and thrilled. In the maze, the corn stalks, which were taller than we are, really made us lose our way to the exit. But luckily, we found our way out with our group wisdom.

The go-carts were the guys’ favorite, since one can make the coolest moves in them.
