Panama Canal Gatun Locks and Lake

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!
