Here's a nice set of comparison pictures showing the transformation of the Canal Embankment

Approximately 200' away from the house, which was almost completely hidden from view along the Empire Trail




Same view, different season.

Pretty astounding transformation, and one that few people understand was done to save lives & save the Erie Canal

These photos were taken today... while they mowed a 1.5 mile long earthen dam.
