The pristine beauty of fall along the Allegany

I love this valley and the view I have of it today. I’ve been blessed to live near here for thirty-seven years. It is the perfect location for my Alma Mater,   St. Bonaventure University. I have often wondered what guided those Franciscan Friars to this exact location. St. Bonaventure spoke of “the fountain fullness of God” and nowhere is that more evident than along these banks.
