New England Trip 2012 – Day 3 – Schuylerville NY

New England Trip 2012 – Day 3 – Schuylerville NY

Days one and two of our trip had featured clear blue skies and lots of sunshine.  As this shot from a corner in Schuylerville NY clearly shows, the weather definitely changed for Day Three of our trip. The village of Schuylerville (population about 2,000) is located on the west side of the Hudson River and was an important location during the Revolutionary Wars and the Battles of Saratoga of the 1770’s.  We had spent the night in Glens Falls and were now on our way to visit the nearby Saratoga National Historic Site when, despite the weather conditions, I saw the unique and colorful bicycle racks at the side of the road and just had to stop to photograph them!



Of course, once I was out of the car and a bit damp, I figured that I might as well get a bit wetter so stood on the corner taking a few more shots of the town and the decorative horse statues while cars whizzed by.



I expect that the drivers of those vehicles were really beginning to question my sanity when I stopped to take a picture of one of their village fire hydrants but my blog followers will understand :-).
