At certain times of the Fall, the Honey Locust trees downtown Brockport, NY shed their leaves and form a golden carpet on the sidewalks and streets. This photograph was taken early in the morning before much traffic started.

This view was also used by a local business in posters and cards:

This old steel sign is out on a dock with a light at Adams Basin to greet patrons of the Adams Basin Inn.  The sign is crooked and in this view shows up as a silhouette in the sunset at dark.

Next to the old classic house West of Adams Basin is the High Bridge at Gallup Road.  This allows traffic to cross very high over the fixed bridge and get over the Erie Canal.  These bridges are out on country roads out of towns in NY State where there are no Liftbridge operators.

Classic Old House West of Adams Basin on the Erie Canal

Moving just West of Adams Basin on the Erie Canal in upstate NY, there was this nice old house or mansion if you will, reflected in the water.  I would love to tour this house and loved the trees in fall foliage around it.  This house had its own basin off to the left side where canal boats used to store for the winter when the canal was drained.

As we continue our walk around the Adams Basin area on the Erie Canal we walk down the old pathway on the West side of the Liftbridge.  We gaze back at the bridge and see with the dark weather we had the lights have come on.  You can see the tower where the bridge operator stays to lift the bridge as boats pass by.

Adams Basin Inn on the Erie Canal

On the West side of the Liftbridge on the Erie Canal at Adams Basin is the famous Adams Basin Inn.  This Inn is still open today and has been continuously open since the 1800’s.  When the original Erie canal was widened in the early part of the last century, the Adams Basin Inn was moved back to save it.

Continuing our Walk Down the Erie Canal Pathway

After crossing the Liftbridge at Adams Basin on the Erie Canal and entering the pathway we walk along the gravel pathway where it gets more and more quiet as you get away from traffic.  If you keep walking for a long few miles you will end up in Spencerport, NY to the East.  On both sides of the Erie Canal there are fields still being tilled by farmers.

The Erie Canal here looks much like it did back in 1825 when it was built with the exception that it is now wider and deeper after being altered 1909 when it was called the “Barge Canal”.

Fall leaves have fallen on the Erie Canal Pathway at Adams Basin, NY.  This is a view along the trail looking back at the Liftbridge.  Clouds have formed and look threatening, but passed on by eventually.

When visiting Adams Basin this Fall on the Erie Canal, I brought along my converted camera that takes InfraRed photos.  This view is a similar scene to the one posted yesterday but in InfraRed. This camera allows you to see this view directly in and on the camera.

Here we have the entrance to the Erie Canal Pathway at Adams Basin.  The pathway or trail goes the entire length of the Erie Canal, but each town and many Liftbridges have a little park entrance with historic board and images.  Many have little park benches near the bridges too.
