Part 2, Pleasant Valley Road

My drive along Pleasant Valley was a shortcut around the busy center of Potsdam as well as a scenic pleasure:

There were horses on pasture and many fine, old trees:

And the Pleasant Valley Horse Farm, which I found listed on the internet as a boarding stable:

More old farmsteads, now all fixed up:

And this long, low, modern home with perhaps the longest porch I've ever seen:

A sprawling home with an old stone well out front:

And an A-Frame, set back in the trees:

The Ellis Cemetery:

Pleasant country living:

Steeply pitched roofs and a double garage, protections against the rigors of northern winters:

More mobile homes:

And many homes barely visible behind the trees, this one with a load of firewood for winter. But I still had not come to the end of Pleasant Valley Road. I'll post Part 3 tomorrow:
