Index for Album tcipanos: Turks & Caicos Panoramas

Panorama Pictures. This is a virtual album pointing to all 42 of the panorama pictures from my early May 2007 trip to six of the Turks & Caicos islands. They are in the order taken, so the Provo pictures are split into my three visits to the island. All stitched using PTgui.

22 A panorama from Gun Hill A panorama from Gun Hill. This is the second highest elevation on Grand Turk. In the early 1780s a small fortification with two cannons was built at this site by the English governor for protection against French invasion. The French did not attack immediately and the fort was dismantled. Most of the rocks were taken away for use in other building projects on the island, though the foundation rocks can still be seen.
If you look to the far right you can first see Gibbs Cay and then Long Cay.

23 A panorama of Great Salina A panorama of Great Salina. I did not go across to what would be the South Creek National Park. It looked kind of industrial. I later learned that the building in the distance is "Sitting Pretty" H.M.S. Prison, and the national park is behind it.
