Canandaigua to Cooperstown, New York_x000b_There’s no straight shot through upstate New York, not with those lakes in the way. But with all the good food to sample, it’s worth taking the drive easy along the Finger Lakes, over the hills, through the farmland, and into river valleys. This road trip begins in Canandaigua, at the northern end of a western Finger Lake, and meanders south to Corning, then north to Ithaca, and gradually east toward Herkimer until it ends near the other great New York waterway, the Mohawk River Valley. New Yorkers and visitors are renewing attention to the land: the food grown here, the ecology that sustains farms and wildlife populations, and the waterways that fostered and transported culture across the state.
