The sights of Upstate NY
« on: August 04, 2013, 11:18:18 am »
There are a lot of great, scenic parks in upstate NY (particularly in the Finger Lakes region).  The past few weekends I've been riding the bike out to some of them, hiking the trails and snapping some photos.  Thought I'd share.  You'll have to forgive the quality on some of these, they were taken with my phone's camera.

Taughannock Falls - FYI, these falls are generally credited as being the tallest single-drop in NY (~3 stories taller than Niagara).



The following were some shots taken at the Watkins Glen State Park.






These were taken from Letchworth State Park.





If you look in the far background of the 3rd pic, you can see the falls (and railroad bridge) from the first picture.

You're my age.  We're getting old.  Plus, now that you're married, your life expectancy has gone way down, since you're more likely to be poisoned by your wife.

Lovely. Really makes me wish I didn't have to cancel my trip to the Finger Lakes last year.

Same thing, from what I understand.  I think holler is more of a southern term.

Yes, I was curious how y'all pronounced it.

Brook, creek, or crick?

It is now no more that toleration is spoken of as if it was the indulgence of one class of people that another enjoyed the exercise of their inherent natural rights. For happily, the government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens, in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. - George Washington

I knew a girl named Brooke. She did babble a bit...

I'm probably going to Letchworth this Wednesday.  Probably won't look too great in the dead of winter.  :lol:

Hell yeah. Who do we have on team UpstateSPIN?

-MX793
-Cale
-Rich (HotRod) has his roots around Syracuse, IIRC
-I will be once again beginning August

Am I forgetting anyone?

True driver's cars have been on the decline ever since they started making cars in which the driver no longer had to advance the ignition timing manually on the fly.  It's been a downhill slide of ever decreasing driver involvement and control ever since.
