There are many many scenes like this along the route. In my opinion some of the neatest stuff I have seen so far.
It is frustrating in that the camera does not capture the distinctive green that you see so many places along the canal.
I saw only 3 bike other riders on this part of the path. This lady was ahead of me for a mile or so and then she was not there anymore. She sort of disappeared and there were no side paths I could see for her to go. I was thinking that this may be one of those ghost deals you hear about during Halloween time.
