Early Morning Pictures at Gretchen's Lock

 Nothing like a haunted bridge surrounded by mist to get your imagination going.  It is so beautuful here, words seem inadaquate.  While all is quiet here now, I wonder what bridge was here before this one.  This bridge is made using the cut stone from Lock 43.  Before that, what bridge  was here and where did it go? 

Lock number 42, or Hambleton's Lock, or Jake's Lock as it is also refered, is mostly hidden from site now. The wall on the right is mostly all that remains of this one large and beautiful lock.
