Three Gorges Dam

Today’s prompt: Gorge got me armchair traveling back to the Three Gorges in China. I never really finished going through and organizing the pictures from two trips through the three gorges one in September of 2014, and in April of this year, 2017.

Both trips the five step locks were not operating at full capacity so the tour boats were not allowed through. In 2014 there was flooding in the upper Yangtze and this year they were doing the annual maintenance. So I still haven’t actually been able to go through the locks.

Third time lucky? I’d love to actually go through the locks but I still haven’t decided if I’ll try again, since I would have to travel at a different time of year than I usually do to avoid both flood season and annual maintenance.
