If you tour the canal kml you will be on the second leg of the
journey across the country by water, described by
William Least Heat-Moon in River Horse. The boat
is named Nikawa, Osage: Ni for river/life; kawa for boat.

In high-res areas, the locks are clearly visible. In low-res
areas, some of the locks are not visible at all. Any corrections
are appreciated.

Hint:
Do the tour on "Route"!

Using Tour on the Route path is almost like being dragged by a
mule on the canal: it's almost as slow. Now if there was only
a way to add an animated mule and barge in to the tour thing.

This would be a good way to run a race course: then you'd probably
want a car, but a mule would be amusing.

Should have said:
Nikawa, Osage: Ni for river/life; kawa for horse.
