I spent the past few weeks on my Grandparents' farm in upstate New York.  When I think of New York I always think of the city and suburbia.  After spending 2 weeks in the upper part of the state, I'm amazed how wrong that view is.  There are hundreds of miles of open territory that has little other than small towns and farms in it.  Amazingly beautiful land.  Too bad I live so far away...
