The Wilmington Dam, New York

As I  drove through the Adirondacks during the height of fall color, I noticed this interesting area in Wilmington, New York. It had recently stopped raining and there was an amazing quality of light at the scene. The yellow band of color along the top of the dam was interesting, although I have no idea what caused it. The rocks in the area are very red in color, almost matching the tree color.

Along an Adirondack River

After spending a day full of the rain and snow of a Nor’easter in Vermont, we took a drive through the Adirondacks of northern New York State. Although the rain stopped, the moisture in the air gave a super saturated look to the colorful foliage. This scene was a few miles from Lake Placid, site of the 1960 Winter Olympics.

USS Constitution or "Old Ironsides"

One of the attractions in visiting Boston, Massachusetts is visiting the USS Constitution or “Old Ironsides” It is docked at the Boston harbor and is open to the public year around. Launched in 1797, it is the oldest commissioned ship afloat.

It has had a very long and interesting history, and earned its nickname in the War of 1812 when it was suggested that cannonballs bounced off her sides as if from iron.

The Old Mackinac Point Lighthouse

The Straits of Mackinac which joins Lake Huron and Lake Superior, has always been a dangerous place for travel. The first lighthouse in the area was built in 1832.  The Mackinac Point Lighthouse was completed in 1890 in an excellent position with a strong light that could be seen for 16 miles. It operated until 1957 when the Mackinac bridge was opened, whose lights made the lighthouse unnecessary.

The Holocaust Memorial, Boston

The Holocaust Memorial, Boston

“Ilse, a childhood friend of mine, once found a raspberry in the camp and carried it in her pocket all day to present to me that night in a leaf.

Imagine a world in which your entire possession is one raspberry and you give it to a friend.”

Gerda Weissman Klein – Holocaust Survivor

The Holocaust memorial in Boston is a very powerful statement. It is is made up of six pillars representing the six Nazi death camps where six million Jews and 5 million others are estimated to have perished. The pillars are constructed of transparent panels which have 6 million numbers engraved on them, echoing the numbers tattooed on the victims. There are quotations throughout like the one above by Gerda Klein, as well as two large granite blocks at each end.

The Holocaust Memorial, Boston

The memorial was designed by Stanley Saitowitz and was erected in 1995.
