The dam holds back the Salt River....it was completed in 1911 is 357 ft high and cost $10 million to build! Originally it was 70 ft shorter but was made higher in 1989 it was also re-concreted and this caused the dam to loose its National Historic Landmark status.-Bummer- but if you look at this OLD PHOTO of the dam you can see it was quite a change-
The Bridge that spans the water beyond the dam is an awesome piece of engineering! Its a beautiful sight!
We had our lunch alongside the water the view was awesome!
