Erie Canal Lock E-30
Macedon, NY

Peeking under a bridge, we see Erie Canal Lock E-30 at Macedon, NY. The 16 foot lift lock looks particularly resplendent with the red painted section on the left. Nobody appears to know why it's painted different than all the other locks. This is the westbound view.

In this eastbound view, the gates are half closed.

2014: The red area is now painted bright blue! Nobody knows why, so I'll just assume the Chief of The Lock likes to redecorate now and then.
