Sunday Morning in Queen Creek: Queen Creek Peach Festival at Schnepf Farms

At 7:30 a.m. we drove down Ironwood Drive from Apache Junction for the short ride into Queen Creek, where we thought we were arriving early to beat the crowds at Schnepf Farms' Queen Creek Peach Festival.
Actually, the parking lot was already filled with cars, which makes sense on a day when it's supposed to be 104 degrees; the early birds catch the peaches without passing out from heat exhaustion.
It was a fun experience, especially if you dare to eat a peach. Or two. Or hundreds.
We're grateful we got a chance to see what the Queen Creek Peach Festival was all about. Mostly peaches, it turns out.
