Pedro Miguel Lock

The canal's descent back to sea level begins at the Pedro Miguel Lock, whose single step is almost quaint in comparison what's happening in the canal’s other two sets of locks. Yet, so vitally important is it that Presidents Theodore Roosevelt and William H. Taft both stopped to inspect excavations and address workers here. The lock is so narrow that you could almost reach out and touch the "mules," the toylike silver locomotives that guide the ships.
