Breakfast on Gatun Lake

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by Raymond Crowel

We left the docks in Panama City early in the morning for a day long tour of the Rainforest along the Panama Canal. This young Howler Monkey came out on an over hanging branch about 10 feet from our little tour boat on Gatun Lake near the Miraflores Locks. He was both curious and hungry and never once stopped munching on leaves while checking us out.

Location: Gatun Lake, Panama Canal near the Miraflores Locks.
