This is always a whole lot of travel time. It's a wonderful experience in the middle, but wow. All day today in the car, and I still won't be home until tomorrow night.
A final goodbye to Philly on the way out of town.
I had a wonderful time, but all the way back to Syracuse, NY, I kept looking out the windows at the hills and streams and wanting to be out there, a whole lot.
Interstate 81 runs right up the Tioughnioga Valley (say tee-UFF-nee-o-ga). This is a bit east of where I grew up, and I'd never realized what a big, long valley it is. It drains south into the Chenango and then into the Susquehanna, and Chesapeake Bay. I just looked it up, and the Susquehanna is the longest river in the Northeast US.
Pictures from a moving vehicle through the window, but I think you can still see what a lovely valley it is.
Tonight with another friend you may remember, Irene.
Home tomorrow, and then I should be able to sort pictures. Hang in there!
