Erie Canal, NY discussion
This is a discussion thread for the following file:
Erie Canal, NY
File includes a path through the Erie canal and snapshots of locks on the canal with a couple of links to postcards on the locks.
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
First book by WLH-M:
Do the tour on "Route"!
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.
