Let's Check Out the Finger lakes

The Finger lakes is big sky country with big vistas of the long lakes, ageless villages and a grid of lonely straight-as-an-arrow roads creating a grid of farms between the lakes.

Wow, a bike shop in the middle of nowehere on State Route 14A about eight miles north of Penn Yan.

It's all about the wine in the Finger Lakes.

The farmland vistas are gorgeous. These two are between Geneva, NY and Penn Yan during today's 100-miler.

The shores of Cayuga Lake.

In Seneca Falls, where the Women's Hall of Fame and a national park pays tribute to the women's suffrage movement, it's not unusual to find a store such as this one.

My first newspaper internship was at this joint in Geneva, NY.

Like I said, there's a real Snell Road -- about five miles from Geneva..
