Abstract
Home movie of scenic stops along country roads of the Illinois & Michigan Canal. We follow a car on dirt trails with footage of the canal ranging from small streams, still lakes, manmade locks and waterfalls, to barges floating through deep waters. We see swimmers, campers, insects, and plant life along the way.
