Illinois- Michigan Canal Towpath Trail, Morris to Seneca segment

Morris is on the Illinois  River.  We parked near the boat launch and kayak rental. No far down the  trail is a replica of a canal boat. Farther on, we passed tall beige grasses that  must have measured ten feet in height. After that, a dilapidated barn and its companions added to the rural aspect of the trail.  Mile marker #65, announces the distance to the  historic Hogan Grain Elevator in Seneca. About 150 years ago canal boats could pull right up to the  elevator at its second level.
