On the top of a steep hill in Wyoming, NY at the Apple Umpkin Festival there was a beautiful brick building with huge columns.  It had a sign saying open so I went up and in and it was a museum with a girl in front in traditional dress. She said she made it herself.

This slightly more modern house at the Apple Umpkin Festival in Wyoming, NY had its doorway all decorated with holiday decorations.  I liked the way the tree cast a shadow over the front of the house.

Yes… I spelled that right, its the Apple Umpkin Festival in Wyoming NY.  This was a small Fall festival South of Brockport about 30 miles.  This is an amazing town as its all lit up 24 hours a day by gas lights as they have their own supple of endless gas wells nearby it appears.  Here is a quaint church that has a gaslight out front.

Six Packet Boats in Brockport!

Ocassionally in Brockport, I see two packet boats and I love it.  On rare occasions I go down to the Erie Canal in the morning or at sunset and find 3 packet boats.  Last Fall I found 4 packet boats and almost fainted with excitement.  This morning I came across the Main Street Liftbridge and glanced over at the Erie Canal and there docked were SIX packet boats all facing the same direction.  I turned around and took out the camera even though it was raining hard.  The sky is gray and forbidding but the boats were spectacular.  It appears they were a group all traveling together.  The people were all together near the Welcome Center and partying.

The sun has risen here on the Erie Canal and now we can see clearly the Tugboat Urger even though there is no real direct sunlight on it. The fog and mist have dissipated now and the water is calm.

This foggy morning on the Erie Canal is finally getting lighter out and things are now visible.  The lights have gone out, but the mist and fog are still around a little on the water.  Here the tugboat Urger is more clearly visible tied up near the Welcome Center.

The Erie Canal Towpath, which is now just a people pathway, is lovely at all times of the year, but now as the light emerges and the fog slowly dissipates, we can see the golden carpet of honey locust tree leaves.  This view is towards the Park Avenue Liftbridge.

Tugboat Urger in the Erie Fog

After walking along the Erie Canal and waiting for the sun to come up a little, I could see the larger boat tied up along the side was the tugboat Urger.  This is one of the larger tugboats of NY State on the Erie Canal and oldest being from the early 1900’s.  It has not been seen for two years because of a massive bent drive shaft to the prop.  I am so glad its fixed.  This is an image of it in front of the Welcome Center in Brockport.

Foggy Pathway along the Erie Canal

As the fog dissipated, I walked back out of downtown Brockport and along the Erie Canal on the towpath which is now a walkway.  I wanted to see if it was getting light enough to see the boats out there and what they were.  The Park Avenue Liftbridge in the distance is just visible in the fog.  The Honey Locust trees along the pathway have turned golden and started to drop their leaves.
