A Drive to Hinckley Reservoir

A Drive to Hinckley Reservoir

I love trips like these, where we just follow our noses and see what we find. We are rarely disappointed. Hinckley Lake and surrounding area is right on the southern crest of the Adirondack Mountain Range. The air is so fresh, the scenery so stunning.

Griffiss Air Force Base Technology Park, Rome, NY

Griffiss Air Force Base Technology Park, Rome, NY

Griffiss Air Force Base is no more; it was closed down during the military downsizing in the 90s. But the area has been reconfigured into a technology park and small aircraft landing space. We went to see the old B-52 stratofortress, the Mohawk Valley, on display.

Marinus Willett Visitor Center, Rome, NY

Marinus Willett Visitor Center, Rome, NY

This center is a magnificent addition to the wonderful Fort Stanwix, one of our favorite places to visit. The center has a mini-museum with artifacts, an interactive history section, and a terrific theatre that shows movies about the history of the Fort and the Revolutionary War. The movies are outstanding– filmed locally and starring park employees. There’s also the best gift shop we’ve ever enjoyed!

A Trip To Cooperstown, NY

A Trip To Cooperstown, NY

We hopped in the car on a frigid winter’s day to explore the quaint little town of Cooperstown, NY. It’s the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame, a lovely marina, the historic Otesaga hotel, and a million other nooks and crannies just begging to be explored. How could we resist?
