Round Robin Challenge-Hometown

My hometown is NY, living here, in Westchester, we are close to everything...the country , the ocean, & the city, Manhattan. I grew up Westchester & lived on western LI for 19 years where I started a family. I moved back to Westchester after my divorce. For the past 3o+ years I have spent many summers & weekends out on LI on the east end, where my family has a summer place. My photos are mostly of my home state & surrounding area.

Pocantico Hills, Rockefeller State Park
This park is near us about 10 minutes away, it has beautiful hiking trails.

Kent Falls, Connecticut is a short ride upstate near NYS line.

I'm amazed (and a little homesick) to see so much natural beauty so close to NYC. Your photos are always a delight!

Beautiful Marie. I love to walk and hike around that park! My niece is marrying someone from Long Island in May. She lives in Manhattan. I would love to get back to New York and have a proper look around :0)
Thanks for your visit to my hometown...
