This Sept. 23, 2013 photo shows a sign indicating the location and marks an area of the apple orchard at the Cornell University Fruit and Vegetable Research Farm in Geneva, N.Y. Trees at Cornell Universitys research orchard are heavy this fall with waxy apples, deep-red round apples, oblong apples and aromatic apples. The thousands of trees here are tended with a single goal to grow apples with just the right mix of sweetness, tart and crunch. The orchards, part of the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station, are essentially a 50-acre lab devoted to developing apples that are tasty for consumers and hardy for farmers. The station has released 66 apple varieties over more than a century including Cortland, Macoun and two new entries at farm markets this fall SnapDragon and RubyFrost. (AP PhotoHeather Ainsworth)

This Aug. 26, 2013 photo shows an autumn apple tart in Concord, N.H. This easy apple tart uses a fuss-free crust that comes together in under an hour. The filling is gently cooked on the stovetop, so the apples retain more of their crisp, fresh, just-picked flavor. (AP PhotoMatthew Mead)

FILE - In this Oct. 2, 2012, file photo, leaves begin to turn peak colors in the White Mountain National Forest in Carrol, N.H. Private campgrounds in the White Mountain National Forest are being told they have to close during the government shutdown, a particularly painful blow at the height of fall foliage season. The U.S. Forest Service says the campgrounds still require federal support services and so must be shuttered as long as the stalemate continues in Washington. (AP PhotoJim Cole, File)
