Our trailer parked by the apple orchard at White Springs Winery & Glass Factory Brew House.
The vineyard was gracious enough to let us stay two nights. On the second day we took a trip around Seneca Lake, the largest of the Finger Lakes. After stopping for $5 breakfasts we made a stop at the Finger Lakes Distillery where I bought two bottles of their Maple Jack Liqueur. When I owned a home with lots of room for stuff, I would buy a case of liqueurs. We also stopped at Knapp Winery and bought a case of their Pasta Red Reserve, our favorite table wine. I will not bore you with how many cases I would buy when I had a huge wine cellar. When we got to Watkins Glen, Jake and I hiked Watkins Glen Gorge. Then it was time to return to the trailer. There was no point in stopping at 6 or 7 more wineries as we would have in the past, because there just is not enough room for stuff in our trailer. Naturally I had to come up with a better plan. Here's the plan: stop at as many wineries as we can in every state. Thank you Harvest Hosts with helping us with our quest.

Jake and I got to walk behind this waterfall.
Jake leading me through the tunnel cut through the rock on the trail through Watkins Glen Gorge.
Once we returned to White Springs Winery & Glass Factory Brew House we bought a bottle of wine and some crackers and cheese so that we could sit on their patio and enjoy the view. While we were on the patio another couple sat at a table near us and struck up a conversation. They had a flight of beers that also included a root beer. They said the root beer was terrific and tasted a lot like A&W root beer.
After leaving the winery we went to Pymatuning State Park in Pennsylvania. We stayed there two days and now we are off to Paper Moon Vineyards in Ohio.
Originally I had planned to go across the northern states before heading South. Well, the blog is called Destination Unknown. Aunt Shirley wants to see us in Oklahoma, so we will turn South after we visit friends in Iowa. Hopefully I can meet a blogging friend in Missouri as we pass through.
