A couple of months ago I stumbled upon the starting point of the Delaware Canal in Bristol PA were mules pulled barges full of supplies all the way up to Easton Pennsylvania begining in the 1830's.
You might remember a post from June that showed a portion of the canal further up in New Hope PA. If not it can be seen here.
The top two pictures in this post are a commemorative circle and a close up of it's center, which shows the route of the canal. It looks like it was put there in 1931.
Fellow Pennsylvania blogger Martha in PA explained about the Miles of Mules project in her New Adventures of Lansdale and Beyond blog in June. The mule in this post is one of those from the project.
Did you see my "Surreal Life on Neptune" post the other day on my Something Sighted blog? Well believe it or not that picture is actually the back of this mule after some editing by moi.
I noticed a few ants crawling on it and thought it would be fun to be creative.
This mule was found near an Applebee's restaurant in Newtown PA. There were 170 of them in the project and I think Martha has found six. So I'm going to keep my eyes open to see more around here.
