Old Barn at the Granville Feeder of the Ohio & Erie Canal, Granville Ohio
USA

This  morning the air was cold, the snow was white and crispy beneath my feet. I drive past this old barn on my way to the Elementary School every morning. The barn can only be seen from the road during the cold of winter, for the fecundity of summer hides the weaken structure from sight. My interest in the barn is due to its justpostion to the remains of the Granville Feeder of the Ohio & Erie Canal. The feeder canal was 5-miles long and was constructed during 1831-32.  The canal's  purpose was not only supply water to the main canal, but also to provide a pathway to market products and goods produced in town of Granville Ohio.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
