Corning, Campbell, West Hill Road and Sunset Drive
A little color, please, in these final grey and dismal days of winter.
I took a 12 minute bus trip to Campbell, west of Corning, to visit my daughter and her family. First is a photo of the Conhocton River (which becomes the Chemung River in Corning) from a one-lane bridge.
Looks at the long coat that horse is wearing. The horses come right over to the fence to see me, but no closer since they know they’ll get a shock if they touch it.
On another excursion out of Corning, my brother drove us up the Hornby Road and we circled through the hills onto West Hill Road. Corning is in a valley and this area is on the north side.
A partridge was crossing the road, slowly. We stopped and watched. Took lots of pictures. Look closely at the left side. I also like how the picture turned out with the trees reflected in the car's side-view mirror.
(Brother took both bird photos since the it was on his side of the car)
A picture-perfect house...
We cut back through Corning and then traveled up Sunset Road, on the south side, which parallels the Chemung River. It becomes Pace Road, then splits into Lower Pace Road and Upper Pace Road. We followed Lower Pace all the way to the NYSE&G Substation, then turned around and drove back the same way.
I’ve taken many pictures of this houseboat from down below, down by the river on the opposite side. Now I got to take a close up of the boat and pictures of the river and north Corning from up on this hill.
The bridge is featured in many of my photos.
Can you see the Little Joe Tower on the right hand side?
More of Corning’s north side along the river.
