After 30 years, I saw my cousins on the Zimmerman side at a park on Oneida Lake. In the morning we drove through the neighborhood I grew up in and by as many schools I attended in Minoa, NY that are still standing.
Livin' free and easy in Oneida.
The house on Fyler Road in Kirkville where I lived from 1959 through 1969
A lot of big trees on the property have gotten even bigger in almost 40 years.
East Syracuse Minoa Central High School looks much the same as when I attended in 1968-69.
Not sure why the flag is at half mast
This is sign is less than 38 years old.
I sat frozen in these bleachers through many football games.
The walkover bridge across the railroad tracks in downtown Minoa.
Am thinking that this young guy didn't use the bridge.

We made it to the other side.

We descended and climbed both these stairs and many more to get to the bottom of the Chittenango Falls gorge.
Dipping a toe
The falls from creekside
Tiger lilies are everywhere in Central NY.
The girls pose by the creek.
