Life These Days {Part 2}

{Sunset over the slope at Cornell}

Here are a few more photos from our upstate NY adventures. Please excuse the 100 animal photos…it’s Wildlife Wednesday???

{Toad friend we found outside my grandparents cabin in the Adirondacks. Photo credit to Mike!}

{Hummingbird at the feeder. Kudos to Mike (again! Wildlife photographer extraordinaire!) for this shot}

{Grandparents’ cabin, but we call it “camp”. I think this an upstate NY/Maine thing? Either way, most relaxing place in.the.WORLD.}

{Archway at Cornell}

{Inside the Cornell war memorial. Mhmm I love my old school yes I do!}

{Big sister/little sister Cornellians. Go Emily GO!}

{Clock tower}

{Last Cornell one. Swear.}

{The definition of upstate NY. Please note the two cows in the back are MOOOOOing at me.}

{I apologize that this is blurry and out-of-focus but UM…this is the night sky at home. Look at all those STARS!!}

It’s official: I’m never coming back to Boston. It’s too pretty here.

    i could never go to school so far north, but i remember the immense beauty of cornell in the summer when i went up there with my uncle who’s an alum. it’s truly outstanding – such beauty. upstate ny in general is underrated – as someone who has discovered more of it thanks to a long-distance relationship – but wow. such an amazing place. i hope i get there every summer because the beauty and relaxation it provides is awesome. beyond awesome. thanks for these great photos!

      OMG!! GO TO CORNELL! I’d go back to school there a billion times if I could. I mean, as if studying in the AD White library isn’t enough to convince you, the dining hall food is like, REALLY really good. I’ll be crossing my fingers for you 🙂

    Ah, so my boyfriend’s family has a lake house upstate (like right over the border from Burlington, VT) and they call it camp too! I just thought they were weird but apparently it is a thing.

    I understand that the most elaborate summer homes built in the northeast corner of the country were also referred to as “camps”. Your grandparents’ camp looks great! Glad you had a great time.
