Champlain Canal Lock 5
We got to see this working canal lock on the Hudson River - very cool. We watched a few boats go through as the water level rose and fell and the gates swung open and closed. There are a bunch of these still operational on the Hudson.
You can see from the sides how far the water level falls.
You can actually walk out on the gates and watch, and we did, though we didn't go for a ride when the opened and closed!
