Watertown, New York
October 2015
While we were visiting Alexandria Bay and the 1000 Islands region, the cool Fall weather had already arrived in northern New York so we took advantage of the crisp Fall weather with a visit to the Burrville Cider Mill in Watertown where we watched cider being pressed before stocking up on so many varieties of delicious apples to take home. We stopped in Watertown again on the way home from Alex Bay and visited the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park. The zoo is populated with animals that are native to New York.

Thankfully, this was a Halloween decoration, not a resident of the zoo!
It's good that there's a place to visit air fresheners
This porcupine refused to turn around for a photo. Maybe he's shy.
