Here in Rochester, NY we have to face the cold hard reality that summer is ending. We knew it was coming, it does every year, all we can hope for now is a smooth and gradual transition into the inevitability that is winter in upstate New York. As we say our last good-byes to summer though, it is nice to take a look back and enjoy the summer memories and prepare for new Fall adventures.
p.s. I cheated a little, not all these images are from this past summer, but they are all from A summer!
