I chose to go to college in Central New York State as much for the rolling pastoral landscape as for academic opportunities, and returned after graduate work in Boston, again, for the Hardyesque beauty. (Yes, I was an English major.) Though I now live amid tall white pines in the Adirondack Mountains, I still return to CNY dairy country often and remember why it struck a chord when I was 17. This is another in a series of homages to New York's farmland.
