Here's a cool GoPro time lapse of our boat traveling through all 6 lock chambers of the Panama Canal (Miraflores Locks x2, Pedro Miguel Lock and Gatun Locks x3) from the Pacific Ocean, up 85 feet to Lake Gatun, then down 85 feet to the Atlantic Ocean. An amazing engineering marvel that will be 100 years old next year. -- Enjoy
