This place is a modern marvel completed 101 years ago after a 40 year construction process. From here you can only see a fraction off the grand picture the canal requires.
Here at Miraflores locks the ships can pass both directions.
And here is the view out to the pacific. The scope of this 45 mile project is hard to grasp, especially considering the time period and equipment used, along with the terrain and weather. Really cool. I love this place!
