East Coast Fall 2021 – Cooperstown, NY, Part One

October 16 -18 Rain followed us all the way to Cooperstown and it being a short drive, we had plenty of time left before we could check into the Best Western Cooperstown Inn and Suites.  With it still raining we sought out an indoor pursuit by driving about ten miles out of town to visit […]

East Coast Fall 2021 – Ithaca, NY, Part Three

October 12 -15 As rain was in the forecast the next day and we’d had our good bike ride, we decided to drive up to Taughannock Falls State Park and perhaps get in a short hike there.  This 750-acre park features Taughannock Falls, a 215-foot plunge waterfall that is the highest single-drop waterfall east of […]

East Coast Fall 2021 – Ithaca, NY, Part Two

October 12 -15 With more than a couple of days in Ithaca we could relax a bit, do some sightseeing, and perhaps get a good bike ride in.  The weather that first day looked a bit sketchy, so we decided to head to Buttermilk Falls State Park, a 811-acre park named for the frothy appearance […]

October 12 -15 With a less than four-hour drive to Ithaca, we took a detour on the way to visit the Corning Museum of Glass, founded in 1951 by Corning Glass Works (now Corning Incorporated) as a gift to the nation for the company’s 100th anniversary.  Dedicated to the art, history, and science of glass, […]

East Coast Fall 2021 – Erie, Pa, Part Two

October 9 -11 We pulled up in front of Erie Ale Works, parked and walked inside, noting a few people leaning against a low-slung wall enjoying their beers.  Inside the tap room is small, with the brewing tanks taking up half of the space and separated from the bar area by a chain link fence.  […]

East Coast Fall 2021 – Erie, Pa, Part One

October 9 -11 With another longish day on the road ahead of us our primary concern was that we would hit a lot of Covered Bridge festival traffic around the town of Mansfield as we drove down to the interstate on highway 59 but given the early hour, we faced only a small amount of […]

East Coast Fall 2021 – Rockville, Indiana

October 7 & 8 With a seven hour drive the next morning we didn’t dawdle, particularly as Bev needed to leave early to get back home and go to work.  It would be another easy, though longish, day on the road and nothing got in the way, so we soon enough arrived for two nights […]
