Bikes below the dam.
Looking down the overflow.
Other side of the dam.
kinda small huh...misty too.
Yet another pic of Cheoah Dam, Tapoco, Graham County, North Carolina, USA. Early morning and a little misty. It started raining on my way back up the Dragon.
that's a beautiful area and Dam site. Love that one.
Poor picture of Dworshack Dam
Little Goose on the Sanke River, near Starbuck, WA. I work at this one.
Found these 2 while I was out looking for a fun place to ride during " Bike Week "
Its all part of the Army Corp Flood Control system. Great place to ride
Funny thing was, It was " BIKE WEEK " and I rode 8 hours on 2 different days, and NEVER saw another bike out there.
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.
That is the Applegate Dam.
Grand Falls, New Brunswick. I stopped here on my way to a Phish festival in 2003...IT! Hydroelectric dam on the St. John River.
I'd say they were releasing some water...
A closer view
That's all I have!
Old Mill in Independence, IA. I cheated with the moon - it was a separate photo with a long lens. Stripped it in with photoshop.
You can tour the mill, and the level of engineering in there is amazing for the mid 1800s. It's Indee's big tourist attraction. Along with one bar for every 20 residents.
Barkhamstead Reservoir, CT. No foliage yet!
Wife in foreground, stone castle control structure in background.
Our Strom on the dam road.
I first read about the 1976 Teton Dam failure in Cadillac Desert. Amazing porkbarrel story. Check out this site for more info:
I visited the dam site on the next-to-last day of my cross-country Elefant ride last month. I had to ride down a boat ramp to get to this section of road, which was well under water for a (very brief) time. You can see the intake tower in the upper left-hand part of the picture.
Wow, nice gear. But wearing those tennis shoes is pretty DAM dumb.
Victoria Dam, MI
Work being done
And the workers hard at it
I was going to start my own dam thread but then I saw this one. So i guess I'll just put my dam pictures here.
And one of the biggest single locks.
OOPS Its sideways. Well this is just one of the may dams in the Tennessee River Vally.
The pumpspeicherkraftwerk at Vianden in Luxembourg, October 20, 2008.
Summersville Lake earthen dam........WVa.
Look close....that's me at the top, waving.
The start of some of the best whitewater rafting on the planet.
