Inside Swift Rapids Lock

Being inside the cavernous chamber gives a sense of the impressive height of this lock.
Swift Rapids lock has the highest lift of any of the conventional locks on the system, at 47'.  It's also the only lock with floating bollards, which move up and down with the changing water level.
View is looking westward, or downstream.

A top down view;

This is near Mile # 224 of the Small Craft Route.
