We were informed by friends being here before to not just walk along the dam, but also get to the observatory deck which we did. The extra view afforded by the higher place is worth it, especially since when we were there, snow still aplenty....More

Huge dam and georgous. High up in the mountain with snow covered mountain and beautiful scene. Windy and cold. An eye opener to see such huge dam.
