The Sights Along The Way To Town

NY is sooooo green!

 Driving to town from our home is not too far. We have many pretty sights along the way. One thing that many people seem to think is that if you live in NY you have never seen a tree. Well you know, even New York City has many trees......and even horses! 

Lots of hills, trees and grass.

I have lived here for most of my life. I actually grew up in Florida. But this is where my roots are. My relatives are all here or are from here. I love the forest, the hilly land and the farms that cover our landscapes almost everywhere you go.

One of the farms along the way home. 

Taking part in an online discussion about living in various parts of the country, it was amazing how different people felt about different areas of the country. I think it is a good thing. Since I love a rural area and want it to stay that way, I am so glad when people say they hate it. Cities are full for a reason. That is so those people can live there and be happy. And I can live in a rural area and be happy too.

Roads need work after the winter! 

I love the freedom in the country that you don't have in the cities or suburbs. Having many neighbors, laws or people just passing through. In my area of the country, people are friendlier than other people think they are. I know, I get tired of waving to everyone as they drive by!

You are so right about people loving or hating rural life. I grew up "in the middle of no where." When I graduated from college, I headed to Washington, D.C., and for the first year I loved it. Then it got old real fast. I moved home after 2 years and now I appreciate rural life in a way that I never could have, if I hadn't left for a while.

I like living in the city but I love visiting the country when we have time off. It feels good to be surrounded by so much green.

Thanks for sharing the view.

These pictures are so different than what I pictured your drive to town to be. Guess I was picturing forest all the way. Beautiful scenery just the same!
