I heard from a group on Facebook that there are no "tree problems", or issues with trees along the canal in Perinton or Fairport. They have stated this is all "fear mongering" on the part of the NY Canal System ownership.

ALL TREES are good according, to this group, even those obstructing canal travel I guess, maybe it should stay in place so turtles can sun themselves on it?

Would be nice to get a picture of this "phantom obstruction" in the Canalway channel, that has resulted in yet another NYSCC Alert Notification.

All these Canal Alerts are proving time after time, that the NYS Canal System is slowly falling apart, and becoming more of a danger to public safety as it reaches its 200th birthday.

Over two DOZEN alerts so far in June.

  Erie Canal - Perinton

Mariners are advised of a fallen tree approximately 200 yards west of the Lyndon Road Bridge (E-124)  over the Erie Canal in Perinton, that is partially obstructing the south side of the navigation channel and marked with buoys. When transiting this area boaters should use the north side of the navigation channel. Crews have been notified.

Boaters should use caution when transiting this area.

I guess this group is really floundering for things to say bad about the NYCC. The postings get less and less toxic every day. Mr Corby (ex-mayor) is busy posting scenic photos of Pittsford, and here Ms Meuwissen is busy posting NYCC ads.





Can it be that they've begun to realise their mission of 'Stopping The Clear Cut' is fizzling out like a damp firework?

Can it be they're trying to save their group from extinction?

I guess it's something to do with their egos, and realising that egg on the face is maybe coming their way this fall, so lets change the subject eh?

Oh! Dear!

Really nice article about how the NYS Canal Corporation turned a Service Road into the largest, most popular Bike & Rail Trail in the Nation.

Worth the read, and also worth the time to make riding the Empire State Trail a priority for one's "bucket list".

I've highlighted a few points form the article in the picture below, along with some thoughts on the Erie Canalway section that runs through our neck of the woods.
