June 10 - 12, August 4, 1998

My apologies for not getting more photographs of New York State. This was my first state of this journey and I had no idea I would need more. I started out in upstate - way upstate - New York, after picking up my pop-up camper trailer in Quebec. After writing three articles, I hustled over to Maine to meet with old friends and to gear up for the trip.

June 13, 1998 -- Willsboro, New York
Would you want this in your backyard?
