Delta Lake Dam
The image a couple of days ago was down at the water’s edge in front of the canal aqueduct. This is the big view of the damn as scene from the bridge over the river. As much as I like the dam, I’m more fascinated by the aqueduct. When building the dam, there still needed to be a way for the Black River Canal to be accessible so a series of locks was built on the right side of the dam and the aqueduct was constructed over the Mohawk River. I found this image on the Low Bridge Production website.
It would have been something to see this canal in operation. It has been close to a hundred years since there was travel on the Black River Canal. At least I can still explore this area and show a glimpse of the interesting history.
