|Entering another narrow cut|
|Rock island house|
|House built off the rock island over water|
|rock edges in the narrow channels|
We will take our turn tomorrow on the Big Chute!!
Skies did brighten as we arrived at the Big Chute.
|the travel lift is submerged in water, then the boats enter, they are positioned by the lock staff|
large boats like ours (and the back in photo) are held in slings
|the travel lift rises out of the water and carries the boats up over a granite hill and roadway|
|the front wheels and rear wheels run in different tracks|
so the lift stays level while going up and over
|3 to 4 lock attendants ride the lift back and forth|
monitoring the lift and the boats
|heading down now|
|lift being submerged on the down side|
|once submerged, the boats leave in order|
