    This is another large dam. With the 2nd largest single lock in the world....I think
    Wilson Dam

    The lock was closing as I ran to try to git a shot of a boat leaving it. I've locked through many times and let me tell you. When your at the bottom of the lock in a 12' flat bottom boat you feel like the smallest thing on earth.

    After 9-11 they closed the dams visitor center that let you walk all around the top of the lock. I loved going to the end of the lock and spitting just to see how many seconds it took to hit the water. Four or five best I can remember.

    Nine Mile Falls Dam .... Yes there is concrete under all that water. [​IMG]

    Dad on our annual B Day ride on the Rent a Harley, sorry no pics of the other side of the dam but the concrete pilings in the background were part of it.

    Dam at Vajont, Italy. Site of an October '63 landslide that destroyed a number of towns. The dam held, though.

    Alpine dam near Italian/Swiss border. All I could think of was "What do I do if the damn thing breaks?"

    Robert-Bourassa facility - 140m buried below the bedrock. Unreal.

    La Grande complex, "giants staircase" - James Bay - Quebec. I'm on the top of the dam. 10 steps, each one 2 football fields in sq footage.

    This is the spillway carved out of bedrock, for the gates pictured, below.
