Panamax Ship Squeezes Through Panama Canal Locks
It seems impossible that this ship could make it through the canal! There are only 2 feet of clearance on either side. It's mesmerizing to watch the entire process at the Gatun Locks Visitors Center. This Atlantic-side visitors center is much less crowded than the Pacific-side visitors center at the Miraflores Locks.
