5 Mile pond

This is one of my favorite views in rural Cattaraugus County. It’s pond created by industrious beavers along the Five Mile Road which connects Route 16 South with the Town of Allegany. It’s just south of the hamlet of Fitch.  I often travel this road and I always like to slow down and enjoy the view here.  I think its actually prettier than the picture. It’s one of those quiet vistas that invites the contemplative in me to slow down or better yet to stop and listen.
