Omigosh. What beautiful beautiful beautiful photos of spring and flowers and water and boats and flowers and GREEN! Loved it!
Hell's suburbs? Looks like paradise! Beautiful. April sounds like a perfect time to hit the road.
Loved all the pictures. Where is Hell's burbs?
Thanks, Malone. It's a very pretty area.Rose, it's beautiful here about 40% of the year, and April is primo. It should be good travel weather, but a really gorgeous time to stay; that will be the hard part.Pidge, the waterfall and stream pictures were taken in Trumansburg. The falls are called Taughannock (if you pass through, say "Tuh GAN uck". The flowers were shot mostly in Ithaca, and the boating pics were taken in Watkins Glen.Thanks, Andrew!
Oh, and the shots of far off hills and nearby wildflowers were taken in the Fingerlakes National Forest. Great camping and hiking area, with diverse, low-intensity trails. Not great for big-rig boondocking, though.
I.M. not sure weather that "lunch' word mis-typin' were a slip or not. After a lookin' at yer writin' and a tryin' to hook it up with yer pictures, maybe you otta say you is permanently out to lunch. Howsoever not withstanding that, aisle be back, as you seems to have about as much of me in you is there is of me and you in me and versa vicea.
Very Nice Photos!!!
I.M., I M almost positive that's a compliment, and if it's not I can hammer it into one. Thanks!

Kimberly and Jerry - I just now got a DM from Twitter - thank you!! I sent Amanda my email address.Merikay, it's so close!
those are places by you??very pretty!april is just around the corner:) wish we could have a going away party for you!! head to AZ!!!what are your plans anyway? where do you want to go first??
Ducky: Yeah, they're all pretty close, and so is April! We'll go to Florida first, to see my mom. We'll hang out there for as long as things are cool, then head west. Maybe (DOWNER ALERT) spread some of my father's ashes on his mom's grave in Orange, TX, and also (ALERT OVER) visit some aunts and cousins in the area. A friend near Bryan, TX. Etc.
I spent 18 years living in the little town of Newark Valley, and raising my kids there. It is a gorgeous part of the country. :) Ithaca was always about a week or two ahead in the blooming department. No doubt due to the Finger Lakes' influence.
Judy, you were in NV?? Wow, that's really close (in upstate miles)! We've rarely had an opportunity to be there, but we were often in Owego, and often in Dryden.We're a little higher than Ithaca in elevation, so we're slightly behind.
Good grief, maybe I should forget full timing and move there. Hell's suburbs huh? And I thought leaving beautifully blooming Virginia in April was hard enough.Sherrywww.directionofourdreams.blogspot.com
Wow, beautiful pictures. Glad it's spring somewhere cuz it sure has not arrived in Oregon yet!!
