We stayed on the east end of Lake Ontario where we photographed this unusual sunset. Then south through the Amish farmlands of mid-Pennslyvania and camping in the Tioga State Forest.
We followed all the scenic byways and avoided the traffic of all the large cities along the northeast coast. This is not an easy task. Sometimes we would see the traffic reports with crashes and back-ups on TV and were very happy not to be a part of it.
Our prayers are with you all as you read this.

Autumn is in the air and all around us. Leaves are beginning to change color, others are drifting down in the wind.
A large variety of fungi are also decorating the forest floor like this Crowned Clavaria on the left.
We spent a couple days at Lake Winnipesaukee - the first day greeted us with beautiful sunshine, hundreds of boats on the water and people everywhere. The next day was gray and rainy, all the people left for work and school - "What a difference a day makes".
Here's Ida between a "rock and a hard place" resting from a three mile hike up the Boulder Trail to the Ledges with panoramic views of the White Mountains.
We are now in the Green Mountains of Vermont enjoying the last of summer in New England.
Blessing to all,
Ida & Ty
