Original Navigation along The Panama Canal.

I'm curious why the need for lighthouses along the canal?

. . . .

When the Canal was built in 1914 there was not as much sophistication in shipboard navigation as there is today.

The Canal is 50 miles of twisting waterway so there were 35 lighthouses put in that were "directional". They had a window that the light came through, rather than the typical 360 degree lights. Pilots would navigate visually with the light in front, and those to the rear, to keep out of the shallows and in the dugout channels.

Today there are still 29 of these lighthouses functional for pilots/captains aid

Here is one located in the middle of the Canal to keep ships in the dredged channel

Beautiful scene.

The lighthouse is located on the north shore of Lake Superior, the largest freshwater lake in North America. The whole north shore drive is incredible and I camp and photo there every year.

I could well imagine camping there would be memorable experiences.
