Glen Canyon Dam

Sunday, 22nd May 2005 by

This is the Glen Canyon Dam in Arizona. What’s great about this post is the bridge that extends across the valley in front of the dam, casting an excellent shadow on the dam itself. The dam’s construction began in 1956, and although it was not dedicated until 1966, it was able to begin blocking the flow of the river in 1963. Thanks: Dick Nielson
