I took a trip out to Canajoharie, NY this afternoon. It started out as a Indian village, and is now a small town best known as the home of Beech nut foods. And there's a world class art museum there, too: The Arkell Museum was started by one of the founders of beechnut as a way to bring some culture to the backwoods. He even went so far as to hire a classical pianist to play on lunch breaks. It's right on the Mohawk: A dummy light: The Plant building is still there: Nice waterfall: The cinders were a little too mushy, so I stayed on the dry portion of the trail. I turned around at the next lock: Unfortunately, Beech nut built a new factory down the road: Hope you enjoyed it. I'm keeping plenty busy here.
