My Hometown



Country roads, flowers in bloom, birds chirping and the sun shining. All good things on the way down to Keuka Lake (KEW-ka). Keuka Lake is a 22-mile long Y shaped lake referred to in the past as Crooked Lake. (Keuka means “canoe landing” in the Iroquois language and “lake with an elbow” in the Seneca language). It is surrounded by gorgeous vineyards and strolling grapevines.

Located at the northeastern tip is “American’s Coolest Little Town” called Hammondsport. Think of the town where Michael J. Fox skateboards through in Back to the Future. Hammondsport looks just like it!

This photograph was one I had to pull over for and jump out and shoot! Spring has definitely sprung in upstate New York!
