I always enjoy time spent exploring the Adirondack region. Usually when I visit the Adirondacks that means I am going to spend a lot of time out hiking. Hopefully climbing some mountains. Circling trails around lakes. Or visiting other beautiful scenery on foot. This year out adventures were a little bit different. We went camping as usual. Camping in the Adirondacks is hard to beat. But instead of our campsite being home… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 315. I love living where I do. If you are not finding ways to enjoy the place you live you are truly missing out. Living in New York on the border of Pennsylvania is the best of both worlds. So many amazing natural areas to explore. Today we went out for a drive and visited a couple of new to me waterfalls. This is Old Dam… Read More

All in the mixed… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 275. Had a fun busy day today. Ran a half marathon in the morning. In the afternoon attended and volunteered at the Annual meeting of the Friends of the Chemung River Watershed Fun event. Music. Dinner. Roast and Toast. More Music. And maybe a moment for the ED to sit and relax for a minute when all is said and done.
One photo a day challenge: Day 267. I wandered in the woods a little bit today. Just looking for a composition I like. Trying to find the right light. Subjects that fit together. The texture on this old downed log caught my attention. I liked the stream in the background. Soft and out of focus. Then I maneuvered my composition to include the two branches of flowers. The flowers are soft and… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 246. Today was a fun day of exploration. It simply amazes me just how much nature there is to see. I saw so many new sights. All without driving more than 2 hours from my house. Every time I daydream about escaping to some far of place I need to remind myself of all the wonders just outside my door.
Camping for us usually means activity and adventure…. I am mostly a homebody. I am definitely not a lets go out and do something kind of person. Not a night out on the town person. Things I would rather to do than go out include but are not limited to: Relax at home and binge watch a TV program I have been waiting to see. Sit and read a book. Maybe even… Read More
One phot a day challenge: Day 235. One hour commute home. Let the dogs out. Feed the dogs. Change clothes. It’s hot. Put on light weight clothes. Get in the car to drive out for a run on the Lackawanna Trail. The trail was in the shade. Watched beautiful clouds. The clouds were taking on beautiful colors. As we were finishing our time on the trail, the sun was setting. Get back… Read More
One photo a day challenge: Day 203. Recently I have been thinking that it seems like I haven’t seen many pollinators around our flowers at our house. It feels like normally this time of year they are everywhere. We plant quite a few flowers. Both perennials and annuals. We also have a large section of our yard that is left wild and is full of wildflowers. Normally there is a constant buzz… Read More
