On the Road

I am safely at Cazenovia, bunking with friend Irene. Just sharing some of the beauty found on the trip here.

gibbous moon

Gibbous moon- I think it really IS bigger these months.

Erie Canal mural

I got off the Thruway and puttered along the Erie Canal for a while in New York. Here's a mural of what it used to be like

Erie Canal

Here the reality of today. Still viable, in fact it's used for both transportation and recreation

Skaneateles River Valley

The hills of New York just make me intensely happy. I always enjoyed them as a child, but I never appreciated them until I could visit as an adult. This is the Skaneateles River Valley.

stripes of plowed land on hillside

Finally, I just love hillside agriculture. Aren't these stripes of plowed and fallow land beautiful?

It was so much fun to not be rushed this morning, and to have the time to stop and take these pictures.

Is the canal man made? We still have a lot of our man made canal system, now used for recreation.

What a joy to have the time to take in sights and capture their beauty. What a great mural that is, too bad they didn't preserve all of that.
I love that last picture. awesome landscape

Beautiful Pictures. Some hikes you need to slow down and take in all the beauty they have to offer. Thanks for sharing.
