Tonawanda to Lockport - Hot!!!
Despite the worst heat wave in years, the next day we chose to go through the Tonawanda Gateway and head towards our hotel in Lockport, NY 18 miles to the east. In the beginning it was through shaded parks on shaded trails. But about the last 7 miles we were on open country roadways, with the sun beating down on us. Hot. No, beyond Hot. But we made it in good time a few bottles of water later. Once in lockport, we decided to cool down with an underground boat ride. Yes, underground. It was 96 degrees outside the underground tunnel, but only 55 degrees inside. It was a welcome respite and a fun adventure.
