Winter in the Finger Lakes

I love the Finger Lakes in the Winter!   Just look at these pics!  There is beauty here year round.  Last week I drove to Connecticut to visit family and as I drove through the Finger Lakes, I was awestruck by the beauty that was all around me.  The waterfalls are located in the Southern parts of the Finger Lakes. These two below are near Watkins Glen.   We have the melting waters of the glaciers to thank for the waterfalls in our region.  I love the way you can see the terrain of the hills when the leaves are off the trees. It appears that there is nothing to hide.  The crisp winter air makes a freshness and clarity that isn’t here other times of the year.  The brilliant snow upon the ground glistens with purity.  It is a beautiful place, and I have been fortunate enough to call it home for my entire life.  Aren’t I just the lucky one?
