Here is a shot of the dam on the lake side. The lake exerts over 45,000 pounds of pressure on the dam - per square foot. You can also see the cars on top - yes, you can still drive across it and my dad and I walked across it. But you are now subject to a search. Also, you can see the two intake towers previously mentioned in the background. The pedestrian bridge in the foreground goes to the Nevada side intake towers.
