First stop is Middleport NY

The Erie Canal floats over roads and creek beds.  Interesting how the Erie is actually an aquaduct that is frequently a bridge over an obstacle that you travel down.

We thought of the Big Apple as we traveled past this large apple.  One of the big items grown in NY is apples.  The groves line the Erie Canal.

sloppy, crude, bull headed, fickle, even stupid, but never
wrong.
