Here is the best I could do to try to get the dam in one frame. It is very difficult as the viewing positions are far away and have railings - and that is somewhat scary to me. You are over 700 feet in the air. You are looking at over 6.6 million tons of concrete - it was so well engineered that it has settled only .25" since built! This is now the river side - the water actually moves in this order: through the intake towers, around the dam, through the generation facility and then downstream. For whatever reason I used to think that water flowed under the dam, but this is not the case.
