Across The Dam

I thought it would be fun to show you what it's like to travel across the top of Gavins Point Dam. This is a view that many people never think about. All the stuff I showed last time is what we usually think about when we go to a place like this.

But have you ever really thought about the view you get when you go across the top of a huge dam? It's an experience that you'll never forget, even though it's not the view you really intended. I know I never thought about this part of the event when I thought about coming here.

I really didn't know what to expect. I didn't know I'd be able to drive across the dam. I assumed I'd get the views I showed you last time. Being up here was a different experience. You feel so high up. It's like being on a bridge.

I wish I could have looked around a little bit more, but you can't really stop and get out and look while you're up there. I did at least get to take a few pictures, the ones you see here and a few more.

I always liked bridges, and riding across the top of the dam is very similar to going across a bridge. I always get a good feeling going across a bridge, and this place was no different. Part of the dam is only one lane, so you have to wait your turn to go across. No problem. It gave me time to get a couple pictures.

I'll show something a little more scenic next time, but roday's view is great to me, so I wanted to share it too. I have so many pictures now that I'm sure I won't be able to share everything. I'm still going to other places and I still have so much from this dam. I don't know what to do. Talk to you later.

  1. I can't even imagine how they construct dams like these!

    1. I was trying to think of how they constructed the dam while I was there. I never quite got it right in my mind.

  2. With high dam must be fantastic views, but safety during driving is the most important :) Regards

  3. How fun! That is a LONG dam, so I am not surprised it was built so that cars could drive across it.

    1. The really fun part for me is that this is the third dam I've seen, and each one has been bigger than the last.

    1. I guess in a way it really is a bridge. Either way I had fun.
