There are 4 dams that control Colorado River. We have visited 3 so far. The last one is in Mexico, so I dont know when that will be.

Pleasant boat ride up the river to the Dam. Capt. is informative and you see all of the Casinos and their history from the Capt. Well worth the 12 Bucks.

Cool small dam on the Nevada side of the Colorado River. It is Davis Dam that creates "Lake Mojave". Interesting to see and compare to the Hoover Dam.

We traveled up the river on the SS Riverside cruise boat to the base of Davis dam. They give a good narration about the dam and the river. Relaxing way to spend some time.

Nice to see. Took the river trip. Couldn't hear the presentation due to the jet skes going by. Lots of action on the river.
