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

For those in the Rochester area saying the Erie Canal Embankments in the western section are a 'dustbowl' and weed covered... you are wrong once again.

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