Columbia Canal - Part Two

Sorry for the delay - HAD to take a nap!

The Diversion Damn on the Broad River
 This was absolutely AMAZING! And you can tell why it was named the Broad River... it is REALLY wide!
 To the right is where the water diverts into the canal from the Broad River!
The old "locks"
 The gears and pulleys are all still in place but quite rusted.
 There were rest rooms here by the locks to represent the old canal  monitor's homes. I would have LOVED that job.
Rest Rooms

The Mechanics of it all.

SNEAKY SCOTT! Took my picture as I was returning from the rest room.
 On the way back we decided to walk in a bit more shade down on the lower trail closer to the river and it was lovely down in there. But drats the camera battery was trying to fade out so we only got this one neat picture of this neat gnarl in a dead tree.
I hope you all have enjoyed this weekends adventure!
