St. Anne de Bellevue to Carrilon – Saturday July 13

Made the second locking out of St. Anne on a very busy weekend traffic day.

Then out into the expanse of the lake, heading West, nothing much up front



Or behind

But don’t get complacent it is shallow and the water is only in the channel

Five hours later into Carillon, a dam and a lock (on the right) not much to see from this distance.


But up close this is quite a structure, a 55 foot lift in one lock, with a guillotine gate at the lower end


We are moored on the approach wall

and took a walk up to the lock as the door opened, looks like a cave inside


That’s the top gate at the top of the picture with fifteen feet clearance over the sill.

 Then the swarm comes out and the door closes


 Locking through this monster tomorrow, then on to Chateau Montebello (the largest log structure in the world) Wiki it and see!

  1. Amazing pictures of that lock.

    I’m off tonight to Wales so may not be able to appreciate all the rest of your trip according to where I am.
    Taking a laptop but wifi ain’t too prolific in upland Carmarthenshire!!!
    So good luck with the rest of your trip and get home safely.
