The GATUN LAKE Canal Area
Just South of the GATUN LOCKS


Monkey Island is on Gatun Lake. Tours are available by boat from Panama



Yes, submarines go between oceans too!


The varity of trees is endless!


 

This almost looks like a small village.




Here is another Sub, in 1971


Here is GATUN DAM, it holds back the waters of Gatun Lake. It is located just west of the Gatun Locks.


The dam also supplies power for the locks.


This map from the construction era illustrates the area around the dam and locks,
which are shown superposed over the previous French excavations
