22 August 2009 Biking Canal Fulton

It was a perfect day to be out. we only got to bike a few times this summer, but we made the most of them. Canal Fulton is a great place to ride. The tow path makes a great ride out. A quick pedal across a canal bridge gives access to a very nice rail trail for a loop ride. The town is also a bit of a tourist attraction so it makes for a nice ride on the journey.

The lockkeeper's house...

We found this woolly bear on the side of an ammo can. It was the shortest woolly bear I have seen. Does a short woolly bear mean a short winter? :-)

This old foot bridge over the canal has been replaced, but it was a really nice looking bridge at one time.

I did something really stupid at our last cache. I had signed the log and was getting ready to put it back in the container when it fell from my hands, through the floor of the bridge and into the stream below. It was moving fast and long gone before we had a chance to run down and retrieve it. Thankfully, we had paper and made a new log for the owner.
