Erie Canal

Okay, do the know the following tune to the following words?  “I’ve got a mule and her name is Sal, fifteen miles on the Erie Canal.  She’s a good ole worker and a good ole pal, fifteen miles on the Erie Canal.”  We took a boat trip though locks 35 and 34 on the Erie Canal.  Wonderful day.  Gary also fished the canal but didn’t have any luck.


locks up ahead.  the upside down bridge.  The railroads did not like the canal so they put up this bridge so the higher part was closer to the water.


locks took us up 50’, 25’ at a time.



america’s widest bridge, 100 yards wide
