photo 7- top of aqueduct, East side

photo 8- Steel support repair of East side

photo 9- Looking North through water channel/trail

photo 10- Looking East

photo 11- Detail shot of South end arch/West side. Do not believe that steel rail was in place when canal was in use.

photo 12- South arch to first support. holes in top of arch are large enough to have a bird living/searching for food in them and be completely out of sight, as one flew out during visit.
