Don't know why but I hoped for more pizzaz at the end of this, the longest canal in the Valley. Walked out from 67th Ave to the terminus where the Skunk Creek channel comes in from the NE and meets up with the canal about .2 mi W of 75th Ave near Bell Rd. That's east of the Peoria Sports Complex. The canal proper actually ends at a large mossy sluice E of 75th Ave, drops down into the shrubby greenbelt to the N and follows a narrow canal westward toward Skunk. There's water in it but not much. At the sluice a smaller canal is directed due W but I did not follow it out. Think it ends or goes underground at 75th. Not much to see until Skunk Creek where traffic picked up with bikers, some high school runners and a few strollers like me. Talked briefly with a biker from Lansing, MI, finishing up an 18-miler. Didn't think to say, "Go Spartans." Before that, 67th to the sluice, the canal bank was all mine except for 6-7 anglers in three groups. One said he caught a striper near bridge at 67th. Very few waterfowl. Four mallards and three coots. Although temps in the 90s, it was pleasant with a slight breeze. Just not a very interesting canal segment.
