I scrambled aboard a helicopter last week to take a little aerial tour of the Thousand Islands region. This place is so surreal—you never notice just how much water is here until you get up into the sky to behold it. The landscape around these parts is as good a reason as any to get up here during the warm-weather months and pay us a visit...
Special thanks to Tseko Vachev of Adirondack Helicopters for being such a great pilot, and to Harold "Bart" Simpson, my pal from the Redwood Tavern, who took me as his guest. Will do my best with labeling these shots!
