Capell Road, In The Town Of Parishville

I'd taken a driving tour of Mahoney Road in the morning and then completed my to-do list for the day. I had extra time and the weather was still beautiful, so I hopped back into the car and drove to Capell Road in Parishville. There were corn fields:

And hay fields behind rows of trees:

Homes with front porches and split rail fences:

Brooks rushing downhill, fed by the recently melted snows:

An old farm house with a hay wagon parked out front:

This farm house had a silo and assorted outbuildings behind it:

Hay fields showing the first touches of green:

Old farm equiupment in front of this home:

I'd been passing through state forest land but didn't know which forest it was. This sign identified at least part of it as the St. Lawrence County Junior Grange Forestry Project:

More old farm equipment and cedar fence posts:

Modern logging equipment which apparently had cleared that field to the right of the truck, stumps and all:

When I got to the end of Capell Road, I found the sign identifying the state forest I'd passed through as Whiskey Flats State Forest, and the Timber Tavern, a country fun spot:
