Eric and Sylvia visit the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in Seattle.
|The Hiram M. Chittenden Locks lead from Lake Union out to Puget Sound. Here's a map of the area:||These huge pistons open and close the locks.|
|Boats heading into the lock.||Aligning themselves...|
|Now the gates are closing||And the boats are rising as water is let in|
|The salmon ladders, unfortunately, were out of commision when we visited.||Another set of boats heading through.|
