Canal Travel Day 2

   The day started with a short commute from Bolingbrook to the Joliet Iron Works.  After traveling through the exhibit, we took the Illinois Michigan Canal walk to locks 3 and 4.  From Joliet, we travelled to Channahon .  Here viewed lock 6 and 7.  The lock keepers house was also seen as well as the dam across the dam across the DuPage River.  From here, we traveled to Aux Sable; here we visualized Lock 8 and the lockkeeper house.  Also seen, was the Aqueduct across the Aux Sable Creek.  We then motored to the Dresden area of the canal.  We walked along the canal, viewed a mule barn, and observed the Dresden Lock and Dam.
     Finally, we went to McKinley Woods Park.  Here we observed portions of the Illinois Michigan Canal and the DuPage River.
