Ossining, NY
Ossining is an historic town located in Westchester County, north of NY City on the magestic Hudson River. Besides being the home of the infamous Sing Sing NY State Prison, Ossining boasts abundant historical buildings, a vital downtown, and a standard of living among the highest in the Northeast US. Ossining is an ideal park and ride location for those wishing to take one of the frequent commuter trains into NY City's Penn Station. This is a major bedroom community for NYC. This too, is "Sleepy Hollow" country where Washington Irving based his famous tale of the Headless Horseman.



Pictured is the Sing Sing Prison. Guided tours are NOT available, but temporary or lifetime residence is rather easily obtained. Note the Amtrak rails through the center of the photo. That's as close as most of us would care to get!

Elmira, NY is a township and city in the picturesque "Southern Tier" region. Located on a broad, flat valley along the Chemung River, the city has experienced catastrophic flooding over the years. Elmira is the birthplace of film director Hal Roach, and has the final home and grave of Samuel Clemmons, aka Mark Twain. The Sullivan Expedition of 1779 passed through the area and fought the British at the Battle of Newtown in the south part of the current town.

Oh, gosh, everybody knows where Dennehotso, AZ is! But just in case you're one of the unenlightened, Dennehotso is located about halfway between Mexican Water and Kayenta on Highway 160. I don't think you can get any Navajo Tacos there because I don't recall seeing any food shacks there. (Good ones are still ahead of you in Tsegi if you're headed west. There are probably good ones in Kayenta, too, but I haven't ever stopped there to eat.)

Here's a pic of the Navajo chapter house in Dennehotso:

Oh, oh, Ojo Caliente, New Mexico. Located north of the Santa Fe area somewhat closer to Espanola and Abiquiu, Ojo Caliente is a small town with a wonderful hot-springs spa. It has its own RV park, but it's not early as nice as the rest of the facility.

Here's a pic:

Elbridge, NY is located on NY Rt. 5, about 15 miles west of its much larger neighbor, Syracuse. The little village began as home for returning Revolutionary soldiers, and now of the approximately 100 buildings on Main Street. over 80% are historically and/or architecturally important. Many of the buildings along Main Street date from the early 1800's to 1890's,a period in which Elbridge grew into a prosperous industrial and farming community. Today Elbridge is a bedroom community for Syracuse, but retains the charm travelers identify with rural NY.

Gimme an E! Eagle Nest, New Mexico. About 10 miles from Angel Fire, Eagle Nest is an older mining town, now a tourist town popular with fishermen who want to do Eagle Nest Lake. The interior walls of the old restaurant beside the lodge are made of logs. It wasn't always a restaurant; it started out as a brothel, and the logs were stolen from nearby Elizabethtown (now a ghost town, but also fun to visit).

Here's a pic:

Tahawus, NY is a ghost mining town, not in the Southwestern US, but in the heart of NY's Adirondack Mountains. Tahawus began in the early 1800's as a mining and smelting center, and reached its peak during WWII as a source of titanium for the war effort. The now-abandoned village is located on the shoulder of NY's tallest peak, Mt. Marcy, and shares the native name for the mountain "Tahawus", or "Cloud Splitter".
Lately, efforts have been made to open the railroad spur into Tahaus, to access the rich metals still left in the waste tailings deposited there over the century and a half of mining there. I lived in Tahawus as an infant while my father worked at the mine.

Cool story about Tahawus, John!

I'll include Shiprock, NM, both the town and the nearby volcanic neck, which is of more geologic interest.

Located in NW NM, the town is basically a Navajo settlement with all the look and feel of a place on the rez where different cultural standards abound. (We might call it poverty, but others may disagree.)

The volcanic neck is a sight to behold in the region. Since I've got several pics of it, I'll include a few of them.

Kankakee, IL

Home of the National River Boat Races on the Kankakee River. My family lived five blocks from the site of these races for many years, and much of our neighborhood would walk to the park to watch the participants practicing in the weeks prior to the actual race . . . .
