Subject: This is just Lake Chautauqua while I'm headed back home via Dunkirk. The pollution layer was so thick that even at 4500 feet at Mayville I still couldn't see Lake Erie. It's the worst I've ever seen it. And no improvement over a year later.

Subject: The next set of pictures are from my March 2011x/c ski adventure down the B&S RR switchbacks 2&3. From being dropped off at Junction Rd and Rt44 to the base of the mountain, it took me just about 4 hours. I would have never been able to complete this ski trip if I had to start at the base and go up and then come back down. My friend Chris Bell met me at the base where I dropped off my car and then he drove me to the top and dropped me off. It was a one-way trip down hill.

I took many pictures of 2&3. I deleted many and didnít post all of them to keep the list short. But even with all the cuts, the short list is 32 pictures posted.

This picture,1920, was supplied by Chris and this is Rt44 crossing over the B&S. It is currently buried under 50 feet of fill for the current roadway. This is where I parked last year 2010 to ski switchback 4. With 32 pictures to view, enjoy the ride.

Subject: Mayville is out of view but is bottom and to the right. The Lake is on the left out of view. We are looking in a southerly direction. You can make out the right of way at bottom center of the picture and then bends up. If you follow a straight line from there you see a small lake near the upper center of the picture.

Subject: This picture is basically 5 miles directly opposite of the picture below. Mayville and the Lake are at the top. The small lake mentioned below is about center left. You can see the rr snaking around to the right of that "main rd" running through the center of the picture. The gorge is at the bottom of the picture.

Subject: This is me sitting inside the red passenger car after a long day on the boat. The inside of this car was far better than most hotels I've stayed in. No cheap plastic cups. Clean, polished....perfect. It is truly ashame that it no longer exists.
