A path to Heaven?

 

Hmm!   That’s probably going a bit too far, but these days the Oxbow Trail is looking pretty sharp!

Our new trail has just been repaved with gravel, thanks to the efforts of the Canal Corporation  contributing the gravel.  They have pulled all the stops out to make The Oxbow somewhere everyone can appreciate.

The ‘before’ photo!

As the rainwater is running from Erie Crescent, I noticed it does linger a little at the beginning of the trail, but with a little more work along the edge, I’m pretty sure we can divert it to run directly into the canal.  Let’s call it ‘fine tuning’!

Our gofundme account paid for the spreading and leveling to be done, so if you like what you see and would like to contribute, here’s the web page  for that.

I live in Fairport, and my home is at The Oxbow section of The Erie Canal. I fish, have a pontoon boat and like messing in boats. (see www.mud-skipper.com). I'm retired and enjoy every day living here with my wife Carol and our two dogs.
