I grew up in Buffalo and I was always amazed that my friends and neighbors never went to the 'falls' (as in Niagara). But that seems to be the way with areas of interest in your own backyard. Now, our recent relocation to the Capital Region finds me seeking out those areas in my new backyard. It again amazes me that I go to an event and people have no idea that place or festival or event even existed! That and a new camera motivated this site. Enjoy!
