Whenever someone says "Upstate New York," it usually means anywhere but New York City. But, to be more specific, I spent the better part of last week in Western New York, about an hour away from Buffalo. It was such a wonderful vacation that I thought I'd share some photos.
The first two photos are from Letchworth State Park, which is definitely worth a visit (or two — this was my second trip to the area, the first being 10 years ago, right after I graduated from high school).
— A catfish feeding frenzy at Moss Lake
— Blue poncho-wrapped tourists braving the mists of Niagara Falls
— Maid of the Mist, ready for a new load
— My first time on a prop plane — not exactly the fastest, but worth it for the finale: a low, slow loop around Manhattan
