20 mile loop...the end
Third and final part:
As we start heading south along the Genesee River Trail, we see the O'Rorke
drawbridge on one side (yes, I do stop to watch it operate..what boy wouldn't?)...
and the Charlotte Lighthouse on the other side (yes it's open for tours)...
from the port area, we wind back upstream into the woods again and arrive
at this 3/4 mile long bridge which circum-navigates the Turning Basin, which is
full of wildlife...turtles, swan, ducks, heron, fish etc.....
here's a photo from this Spring taken from the Turning Basin bridge...
from the south end of the bridge, it's about a mile up this grade to the residential
neighborhood where we started our ride....
and back to Cranky's messy garage....
This journey traveled a distance of 21 miles. Every time I ride it, I see
something new, and I almost always meet another 50+ cyclist whose
willing to stop and chat a spell. Can't wait till my next day off, I miss the trails
Hope this isn't too much info and too many pics....don't wanna be boring.
