The Beauty Where I Call Home!

One thing that I really like is that the photos are labeled with where they are in the Hudson River Region. In case you want to explore, they are real places which can be found! The irony is that these places remind me of “home,” which was the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia .  One significant difference is the cold , snow , and ice in Upstate New York compared to Virginia.
