I could not believe the amount of trash at a roadside rest stop along the Erie Canal. The picnic area, parking area, and the canal itself looked like a garbage truck exploded. This is Clinton’s Ditch, the former “road” to NY prosperity. It is now a great place for a towpath trail for scenic garbage viewing. I did not have gloves or garbage bags with me. I don’t think I would have energy to clean up the whole place myself. I would also need a boat and net to clean up the waterway. Instead, I will just document it for now.
