Delaware Canal Today
The Delaware Canal was constructed by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and opened in 1832 to transport anthracite coal from northeastern Pennsylvania to the city of Philadelphia. The canal operated until the early 1930s, making the longest serving canal in its original course in America.
Today the towpath is maintained as a linear park. It offers a glimpse into areas not otherwise easily seen by automobile and connects quiet villages frozen in time.
In November 2018 I made a one-day bike trip from Easton to Yardley, PA (46 miles) to record the scenery along the way.
Here, I post a selection of the images.
