    Default River Horse

    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.

    Default Canal Tow Path

    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.
