We passed by the remains of the Montezuma / Richmond aquaduct where it crossed the canal of 1862 at the Seneca River. It was originally 900 feet long.
THE TOW PATHS —- MANY MILES CONVERTED TO BIKE AND JOGGING PATHS.
THEN, at one point there was the sensation of “going up hill”. In fact we were, without the benefit of going thru a lock. At this one and only point on the Canal, the Erie Canal actually goes over a road!!!!! Talk about a weird feeling.
This is a typical lift bridge. Located in Brockport, where we “missed” their town wall music concert. BUT memorable because it is where I blew out the new fuses for the generator and now no AC on generator power. DANG —- 😦 But this is an easy fix once we find the replacement fuses. If the docks are not free there is often a minimal charge for power or water. This night we paid $12.00!
The further West we traveled the more farms we saw. Vegetable farms (tomatoes, potatoes) and acres of apple orchards. Several farms tap in to the Erie Canal waters to use for irrigation of the crops.
