Explorer1.com Review – A small family farm that’s open to the public during September and October.  It’s a very low key farm — making it an ideal pumpkin patch for families with very small children and toddlers. They have pumpkins, gourds, squash and more.   And as a bonus, they have a couple of very friendly goats that seem to love kids!

Advisories

The Region’s Fall Advisories:

Traffic Conditions. Rush hour traffic can be extremely challenging – especially along Mission Street and Highway 1 between Santa Cruz and Capitols. It’s a good idea to plan ahead and arrive early and leave late. Go to www.caltrans.com to learn about road conditions.

Yes, it’s still water, water, water! California is undergoing an extreme drought. If you are planning a lake vacation be sure to check about water levels. That rafting trip, fishing, or skiing can be impacted.

EXTREME fire danger. The drought has created a very dangerous combination of dry vegetation and no moisture in the air to help contain any fire. Please use extreme caution during your trip.
