The video starts, quite literally, at the Ohio River. The muddy water coming from the stream is mixing with the "clean" clear water of the Ohio River. I know the waters of the Ohio River are anything but "clean", but for the sake of this video, they are cleaner than the water coming out of the canal.

I went out of my way to show the pathetic trash along the Ohio River, which is prediminantly plastic bottles and such. If you haven't noticed by now, my videos are very detailed. At 2:05 in to the video, I stopped to get a closer look at the chisel marks used to form the stone. Many of the stones had these peculiar markings on them.

At 4:02, I showed a close-up of one of the four metal "pins" which had been set between two stones. I have no clue what the purpose of these pins are. They appear to be parts of a hinge or sorts.

At certain points I had to set the camera down so that I could jump either up or down to a different level to keep recording. My camera did not have a pause feature to use during recording.

It would have been interesting to have seen something carved in stone from the early 1800's, such as an easily recognizeable date, but, alas, the eariest dates I found carved in stone were from 1982.

In the mud I happened to find a couple old pieces of metal, which, I am guessing, are from the 1800's, and date back to the time when the canal was actually in use.
