    Took a leisurely ride around Gomer Hill and Crofoot Hill in Upstate NY



    mostly what they call minimum maintenance roads (no plowing in the winter)

    surprisingly little debris in and around the road





    went through some State Forest areas......but little if any old growth left.

    Love riding through the trees when the leaves are on. Lots of history back yonder with the old stone walls, old grave yards and what not. Looks like it was a very relaxing ride through the country. Thanks so much for sharing your part of the world. Good stuff!

    When you say someone was gathering syrup, do they kind of 'stake a claim' and tape off the area? Looked like you had a nice ride. Take care. Gerry
    Take care my Friend.........

    Gerry: You can get in big trouble or shot if you tap other people's maple trees around here. Like was said, that is tubing running from tree to tree so they don't have to have buckets on every tree like you would see "traditionally" (aka the way i do it ) -- With the tubing setups you can gravity feed to a large tank at a low point from all the trees and collect all at once, or some people even have vacuum pump setups to pull it right into their sugar shacks!



    Thanks for the pics! I have been riding a lot and it is great to see everything coming into bloom. Wouldn't be able to stand living somewhere that there was not discernable "seasons" like our spring/summer/fall/winter in NNY
