That looks stunning. It amazes me that so many foreigners want to visit NY when there are places like this to visit.
Thank you Cro! Raleigh is awesome...in addition to all the beautiful natural areas, there are wonderful places to eat, museums, live music, a thriving arts community, universities, and the list goes on. And you are only a couple of hours' drive west to the mountains and east to the beaches.
I was there twice in the last 16 years. Time to go back.
