Eastern Erie Canal

I’ve traveled the Erie Canal between Oswego and Tonawanda several times, but this section is new to me. I like it.Yesterday I was underway from 0800 to 1700 with a brief lunch stop in Schenectady. Nice day, variable overcast and calm. I left Waterford and climbed through 10 locks, stopping for the night just above lock 11 in Amsterdam.I rained last night and this morning. I waited out the rain and got underway around noon, and came up to Riverfront Park in Canajoharie. There are two eastbound boats here tonight.The Mohawk River valley is pretty around here. I took a bunch of pictures yesterday. This one was first. It was neat being in a pool with an invisible dam looking out over the valley.So I took a sequence of pictures going through lock 7.
