The original Timber Dam at Redridge. They took the top 10 or 12 feet off it a few years ago because if it let go they were afraid the steel dam would fail, even with the big holes cut in it. If the steel dam was backed up and failed it would take out the road and people would have to take the LONG way to town.



William Jess dam in Oregon. We don't make them this big in Michgian.





I think this is the Medford dam, also in Oregon. I was on my way to a friends wedding and couldn't pass up the chance to look at another dam.



That is the Applegate Dam.
