Upstate New York

My mom had work this past week in Rochester, so I went up to meet her on Thursday after class. I've been to upstate New York once in my life, and it was beautiful. This trip met those same standards. Thursday night I met my mom and three of her co-workers at The Owl House for dinner, but our real fun started Friday morning. 

This post is mostly pictures, so I hope you enjoy it. This weekend was great and I really enjoyed hiking and seeing nature, especially since it was in Upstate NY. My mom picked perfect places to hike, and it was great to get away from dorm life for awhile. Counting down the days till I get a single room again! 

Friday morning- Rochester

my lunch- bbq tempeh with greens on gluten free bread
