It's clear that the Panama Canal was an amazing achievement for 1912, but it's hard to grasp how truly astounding an effort it was without actually seeing it. As our circumnavigation of the earth comes to a close several days from now, I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to do experience it.
Enjoy the images!
