Today's high was 78, sunny and low humidity. The wind picked up and blew from the west so strong we had to get out the windbreakers to stay comfortable.
We left the wall this morning and headed for locks E-11 through E-16. Along the way we made pictures of the locks and dams as we came to them hence the title of this blog.
In addition to making dam pictures we took some other interesting photos along the way. Our destination was another free dock located at the Herkimer State Historic Site. We didn't know anything about this place other than the fact it had a free dock, if you could get it. Well, we got it and were not disappointed. It was located just 1.5 miles east of E-17 on the south bank of the Mohawk River. Just a small 60 ft plastic pier in the shape of a "T" with just enough room to get Viridian tied to.
Once we got settled we explored that old house place and took some photos of the grounds. This also looked like a great place to set up our hammocks and take a nap under the stand of trees located on the bank. After supper we took down the bikes and peddled along the bike path to see what was beyond our ability to walk.
That's the dam news and here's some dam views:
