If you’ve never traveled the Erie Canal and haven’t experienced the engineering marvel that allows a boater to traverse the width of upstate NY, connect to the Great Lakes, continue up the Hudson River to Lake Champlain and into Canada and allows boat travel from the two largest Finger Lakes to anywhere in the world. Then you’re missing a great experience!
What you won’t think about on a nice summer day out on the Canal is how they keep all 56 locks operating throughout the season and that the majority of the maintenance is performed during the off season.Read more: Lock E-27 On The Erie Canal
