Apricots Hanging On A Tree Near Patterson, California

Obviously not fossils...grin. Apricots hanging on a tree, in an orchard near Patterson, California. If you're visiting the area in early June, plan a side-visit to the annual Patterson Apricot Fiesta, traditionally held during the first weekend in June. Downtown Patterson lies a few miles east of the fossil leaf locality (as the crow flies) at Del Puerto Creek. 90 percent of all the commercial apricots produced in the United States are grown in the Great Central Valley Patterson area. It's the "apricot capital of the world". Photograph courtesy a blogger named "Julie" over at It's Apricot Fiesta Time!
