Is this the view you saw?

That's gotta be it 585... you'd have to zoom big, then you lose view of Honeoye lake & valley unfortunately. The only other place I think that could maybe have a similar view would be from hills on the west side of Canandaigua lake. In any case, it's quite a sight in person.

Ckh, Harriet Hollister is right on the south end of Honeoye lake... sort of a state park, land that was donated. I think of that general area as the wild part of the finger lakes... heavily wooded, very steep & big hills, lots of state land, and 2 of the lakes (Hemlock & Canadice) have shorelines nearly all wooded & undeveloped. Love it in there, so beautiful.
