Celebrating the 240th anniversary of this great country we call the United States of America in Houghton, NY. Last year we were boiling, sweating, and swatting mosquitoes in southernmost Louisiana on the Gulf of Mexico. This year we are enjoying the much cooler weather in western NY state Genesee region. We've been mostly relaxing at the KOA for the holiday weekend, and doing some of the chores you have to do no matter where you are (grocery shopping, laundry, etc.), but yesterday I got up early for some photography along nearby Wiscoy Creek, a short tributary of the Genesee River. Wiscoy is a Senaca Indian word meaning "five falls creek". I was able to find 4 of the falls for pictures. On the way back, I stopped at a farm that had a big collection of restored Allis-Chalmers tractors. I couldn't pass up the bright red-orange of the paint. We'll be pulling out in the morning heading east. We'll eventually wind up in Springfield, MA area so I can work next week in Chicopee, MA. Stay tuned.
