Coast-to-coast Day 6 - NY and Mass.

The Falls are awesome, truly, despite all the commercialism. A genuine Wow moment. We pass through Buffalo, on to Utica (cute but not much to it). Then Albany, with an unusual capitol building, which seems to be modeled on Parliament. Pull off in Kinderhook, NY, enticed by a sign that Martin Van Buren’s home is here, but we can’t find it, and it’s getting dark. Onward to Cambridge.

Moby Dick? We're into the long discussion on species of whales and how they should be classified -- fish or mammal. We're not going to finish it, but at least we have 140 pages of sampling.

(For scale, note the tour boat in the lower right.)
