Thoughts of home

Annnd as long as we’re talking about winter, and snow, and Upstate New York, how about a little glimpse of my home?

This shot, by the lovely Shannon, of Square Effects, captures an iconic scene at Watkins Glen, not too far from where I grew up in Rochester. I really miss all the lovely parks, hikes and lakes we have up there… I know we don’t get a lot of attention out in the Western half of the state, but believe me, New York is a lot more than just the Big Apple!

P.S. Critique tomorrow! I promise! No excuses!

  1. Thank you SO much for reminding your readers that New York State does INDEED extend beyond New York City! There’s SO much to offer all around New York. We’re heading into one of the most amazingly picturesque seasons…fall in New York State is AMAZING, especially when you can visit one of our many state parks, like Watkins Glen in this photo.

    Thanks so much, Amy!!

    Many regards,

  2. Rochester? Heck… you’re more New Englander than New York from what I gather from my friends in Upstate!

  3. Oooooooooh, that is beautiful!!! You’re right, we don’t hear much about the state and all the wonders it has to offer….that is very sad.

    Guess we’ll all just have to make an effort to come visit and see for ourselves!!!!
