Summer in Upstate NY

Upstate NY in the summertime… big blue skies, puffy white clouds and starlit nights,


sweet summer rains… splashing

in the puddles, dancing in the rain,


splash in the rain

…sailing, kayaking, boating

and water skiing,  

crystal clear cool lakes, jumping off of rope swings,

splashing in the waterfalls, 

…climbing the ravines

Watkins Glen State Park

swimming and late night skinny dipping,

hometown 4th of July celebrations, sweet juicy watermelon and seed spitting contests, cotton candy, baseballhot dogs and baseball, backyard BBQ’s and county fairs,


farmer’s markets, 100% pure organic, fresh fruits and garden vegetables, local farms, country stores…

cool nights and misty mornings,

camping, bonfires, roasting marshmallows and making smores, 


ice tea, lemonade or an ice cold beer,

bike rides, dirt bikes, 4-wheeling

 and horseback riding, 

trucks, tractors and big red barns dotting the                 

poppies landscapes, fields of hay, alfalfa,

hops and wildflowers,


the sweet smell of fresh cut grass, the green, green grass of summer and lush green mountains,   

waterfall stream     

   the trickle of a cool stream,


catching crayfish and polliwogs, the serenity  of fishing,

cruising through the mountains on a Sunday afternoon,

hiking the Catskill trails, exploring,       Margaretville waterfalls


there’s magic in these mountains and music all around,


outdoor concerts and microbreweries, Woodstock, Hunter Mt, Cooperstown, Oneonta,

…….those lazy hazy days of summer.

A Catskills spring morning
