Road Trippin' in Beautiful Easton NY

Thursday, November 10, 2016

Back in February of 2015, I penned the title of a blog, 'A Winter's Drive Through God's Handiwork' . That post featured the snow-covered beauty of Easton, NY in Washington County and I've been smitten with Easton ever since.  We revisited Easton twice in the past few weeks (yes, I admit I have an occasional problem with self-control) and what resulted from those two daytrips was a bundle of beautiful photos that will necessitate two separate posts.  Yes, Easton is just that spectacular, unless of course, your idea of beauty is concrete skyscrapers.  As for me, just give me the countryside!

Located in the Hudson River Valley, south of Greenwich and east of Cambridge, Easton is an agricultural region with over 30 farms.  With the autumn color, I was completely overtaken with awe. Just past the election, you might find it interesting (or may already know) that Susan B. Anthony spent her formative years in Easton.  At age 13 she joined the Eastern Society of Friends and at 17 she taught school in Easton for $1.00 a week.  Easton is also the birthplace of celebrated primitive artist, Grandma Moses and George Corliss, inventor of the Corliss steam engine.   Driving through Easton today, one can imagine those folks living here and it appears not much has changed since their day.  I think that's part of it's charm.  See if you agree..........
