In Upstate New York there is a little ski town near where we are camping on the Southwest part of the state near the Pennsylvania border. This is the quaint village or small town of Ellicottville. It has transformed into a thriving tourist town because of its shops and proximity to the ski slopes nearby. Here are a few images of the downtown of Ellicottville showing what is typical of many small towns in NY state, having just one or two streets of activity.

While walking around Ellicottville in the Allegheny Mountains in Southern New York state, we came across this small barn or wooden garage. It was in the backyard of a downtown house and was leaning so bad that it looked like it was about to fall over. It however was very sturdy and going nowhere even though it looked so canted to one side.

After getting up early while camping in the Allegheny Mountains, I took a series of 8 photographs and stitched them together to make one panoramic photo.
