The Finger Lakes region of New York has an almost magical effect on those who visit. Gone are all the obligations that burden you when you're home. Gone are all the responsibilities that fill every waking moment. Everything disappears save the extreme natural beauty of the region and your willingness to get lost as you explore the fields and lakes, gorges and waterfalls. Visit one of the area's acclaimed wineries, like the Red Newt, and let every Dionysian fantasy you've ever had take over. Soon you'll return to the more Apollonian existence of New York, where everything is ordered and perfectly in its place. So enjoy your escape while it lasts. The Finger Lakes are meant for exploring.
