Along The St. Lawrence Seaway

The day dawned crisp and bright, with a heavy frost on the pumpkin.
By 09:00 it just squeaked above the freezing mark, so it was time to don the gear and head out...destination, Hwy 2 along the St. Lawrence Seaway.

First photo stop is the Johnstown/Ogdensburgh bridge.


I should get the bike in the photo this time.


Oh look, the winter salt is being delivered.


Back on the bikes and heading east, we almost missed a big ship using the Locks at Iroquois.


Amazing how much water those things churn when getting underway.


Looking upriver at the locks.


The locks are used by all types of vessels.
I wonder how much the fee is for using the locks?


Ok, enough with the big boats...lets look at trains!
This old fella is on display at the entrance to Crysler Park.


Yeah, it's cheesy, but I just had to get a "racing the stationary train" shot.


It was close, but I won by a nose.


Cheesy-ness is contagious.


Those T-Max machines are fast.


Looks like they're going to extend the tracks from Upper Canada Village all the way to Crysler Park...cool. I'll have to come back next summer and check it out.


I can see Russia from my house! Ok, it's just another laker...I still think they're kinda cool.


The entrance to Upper Canada Village.


I don't know why, but this photo makes me feel very manly.


Unfortunately, I have to head back now and get ready for Thanksgiving Dinner at my sister's.
A quick stop at the Spencerville Mill for the last photos of the day.


Suddenly, I have to pee.


Not sure what this is, but it's rather photogenic.


Does it get any better than this? Lazy Sunday afternoon, playing by the water and daydreaming.


The leaf in the water was kind of mesmerizing.


It was a good day.

Very nice. I grew up in Glens Falls but never made it up to that part of the state. Looks like I need to go if I ever get back for an extended visit.
Thank you.

I was looking for some photos of Upper Canada Village from previous visits.
We take the kids every year and spend the whole day.
I'll have to look on the old computer.
For now, here's a couple photos from the Upper Canada Migratory Bird Sanctuary, which is just a bit to the east of the Village.

Hmmm, I'll have to dig through my backup CD's.
All I can find is a couple of photos I messed with in Photoshop.

The Stage Coach at Upper Canada Village


The Mini Train at Upper Canada Village


Every winter, beginning late November, Upper Canada Village opens the gates for "Alight The Night". They decorate the entire village with Christmas lights, and you can enjoy horse drawn wagon rides around the grounds.
For some reason, hot chocolate tastes much better after a horse wagon ride.

Sorry, I can't find those photos, but here's one I took last winter in my backyard. I think it looks like a bird.

I forgot all about this post - RRR had to dig way back to find this one!

I still have that bike and added several more to the stable since.
Hopefully I'll have a new RR early summer.

Simbaboy is heading this way in May or June on his way to see the whales.
I'm going to try and join him - at least for part of the ride.

Hello Friend,
I will be in Moab in April and then ride your way most likely in June. I hope that you can ride along most of the way.

Nice ride on a cold morning.
I crossed that bridge once on my way to Ottawa.
In the car though.
Thanks for the pics.

Ah Simba - I wish I could join you in Moab!
I was there for first time last year and it was terrific.
My spring vacation is already booked with the gf, flying to Vegas then sightseeing through Death Valley and a loop through California.
Maybe next year I'll get to visit with you and RRR and the rest of the guys in Utah.

This year I'll have to settle for some good old eastern riding in June with you - maybe see some whales!

Hey Vin - thanks for dropping by!
That bridge can be a bit slick crossing with a bike, but it's not so bad after you've done it a couple times.
