The Beautiful Little Town Of Edwards, New York

After our big adventure hiking the Wolf Lake Loop Trail, we were all exhausted but happy to be sitting in a comfortable, air conditioned car once again. I'd driven through the town of Edwards on the way to the trail head and been very impressed but hadn't taken any photos. I decided to remedy that on my trip back home:

Edwards sits southwest of Potsdam and Canton on the great northern plain just above the Adirondacks. It's great, flat farm country yet also a next door neighbor to the Adirondack mountains. As I pulled into town, I saw a man on his front porch, apparently just watching the (infrequent) cars pass by:

Edwards was a very small town but did have a bit of a business district: Notice the sign for their nearby neighboring towns of Russell and Fine:

They had an impressive Town Hall:

A few houses, a few store fronts:

A purple and pink home with a brick red roof:

Old, well kept homes with Spirea blooming out front:

And big, wrap-around porches:

Picturesque churches:

And their own Post Office:

The "downtown" had a row of stores, apparently with apartments above them:

And a magnificent library. But the most impressive part of Edwards to me was the surrounding farm country. I'll post some photos of that tomorrow:
