Leaving The Locks

Leaving The Locks

Miraflores Locks, Panama Canal, Panama view map

Here we are in the first chamber of the Miraflores Locks (foreground). This chamber will lower us down until we are level with the second chamber you can see right after it (midground). After moving into the second chamber, we will be lowered once again until we are at sea level and we will exit into what leads directly into the Pacific Ocean (background). This completed our journey through the length of the Panama Canal.

That is amazing. I hope you took lots of pictures. I will require a step by step explanation of this when you get back as I'm too dazzled by the photo.
