A Walk Along the Erie Canal

One of the many nice things about staying at the campground we are at right now, is that it's next to the Erie Canal.  There is a very nice bike/walking trail next to the canal.  The weather has been wonderful for walking.  All of which makes me happy.
One of my kids even gave in to my pathetic begging to come and walk the path with me.  I'll let you guess which one since I was not allowed to take pictures of that person even if they were kind enough to walk with me.

 It is just so beautiful here.  The perfect place to walk and see the area.

 There is red rock along the shore of the canal. 
 And it is really educational.  There is a long, interesting history to this canal.  I already have a few books to dig into so we can learn some of that history.  We might actually get to those books now that I'm taking a day's break from cooking to catch up on blogging and do some other things.  In the meantime here is an overview of this fun place:  New York State Canals

Living the life in New York!

Living in New York vicariously through your posts -- it's the one State we just drove-through on this roadtrip. (We've "slept there" before though.) Beautiful pictures.

Back to catch up -- today is laundry and catch-up on blogs day.

I got a mule and her name is Sal
Fifteen miles on the Erie Canal

Kind of cool to put pictures to a familiar folk legend. Sans the mule, of course.

Thanks Krystal!
