The Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York was formed by the area's history of glacial scouring, leaving long, broad, flat bottomed valleys and steep sided hills. The most prominent feature today is the series of long, deep lakes that give the region both its name and its character.
Although it was once used strictly for commerce and transportation, the Erie Canal plays a different part in Upstate New York's economy today. Stretching from Lake Erie at Buffalo to the Hudson River at Albany, it offers a unique slice of the area's history for use by a broad spectrum of recreation enthusiasts. Shown here are bikers, boaters, hikers, and siteseers.
