Since turning left on the Hudson into the mouth of the Mohawk, we have been hearing about Lock E17. It's legendary, with a 40.5 foot lift, half again as high as any along the canal. When it was built, it replaced four locks.

Note the counterweight immediately under the "17" and the NY169 bridge swooping across the river in the distance.

The cliff to the right of the river is a popular rockclimbing spot. Boaters look at the climbers and climbers looks back at the boaters.
