And like we've said earlier, one of the must visits when in Upstate NY is the two-story Wal-Mart in Albany. Of course, we couldn't let Andy out of the time zone without taking a ride on the escalator there! The part that the shopping cart rides on was out of commission for a bit when someone got their cart stuck halfway up the middle, groceries and all. The Country Mouse still thinks it's exciting to shop there!
Before we dropped Andy off for his flight back home, we stopped at Cohoes Falls. The second largest falls in NY (behind Niagara's American Falls) are only about 10 minutes from our apartment. Cohoes Falls is roughly 1000 feet wide and about 90 feet high. The Mohawk River feeds the falls and water flows over at 90,000 cubic feet per second! The area is really beautiful and really different from the South!
We hope Andy had a good time visiting us and if we can get him to ever come back, we promise to get him a proper bed!
