More Dam pictures from my Summer 08 Ride.

Great thread. I also love dams, for their varied engineering and sometimes graceful lines. The sheer number and variety of dams on the Columbia River system in the US and Canada is simply amazing.

Chief Joseph Dam on the Columbia River in Central Washington.

Long Lake Dam on the Spokane River is obviously an older dam. Interesting Design.

This dam on the Spokane River is right in downtown Spokane at the City Park. Beautiful spot in a very pretty city.

The Lower Granite Dam on the Snake River is the only river crossing in many miles. We were stopped by security and had to produce picture ID before we were allowed to cross. No stopping and no photos of the dam or lock while crossing. Odd as there was no issue in photos after we crossed.

A couple of Libby Dam on the Kootenai River in NE Montana.

To get an idea of the scale, those dots are people walking on the dam.
