These photos document the 3 locks used to raise ships 85 feet up to Gatun Lake. As we rose the lake regally came into view!
It is such an amazing mankind accomplishment, and something I enjoyed while having breakfast on a cruise ship 🙂
Crossing the Panama Canal was a major bucket item list that I was able to finally accomplish on our South America cruise in December 2016!
A great documentary is available that I would highly recommend on youtube and is well worth watching!
