The Travels of Tug 44

Erie Canal - Mud Creek Aqueduct
Palmyra, NY

This photo of the Mud Creek Aqueduct, also known as the Ganargua Creek Aqueduct, was taken from a conveniently placed nearby modern road bridge. Notice my boat, Tug 44, appears through the trees a few hundred yards north of the old aqueduct. Tug 44 is docked at modern Erie Canal Lock E-29.

In this closeup of the south side of the towpath arches, one sees large keystones at the top of each arch. These were largely decorative, as they do not appear on the north side of the arches.

This close-up shows the north side of an arch, lacking the keystones.

This view looking up the creek shows the considerable amount of water still flowing down the old canal, and dropping into Ganargua Creek at the aqueduct. Did I walk on water to get this photo?
