Glen Canyon Dam Flood 1983

I visited the dam just before the peak flow. There were workmen nailing plywood on top of the dam with the water just ~8" below the top. The flood caused 40' cavitation pits in the spillways. Disregard the EXIF data for this photo. It belongs to my current camera digitizing the original slide. This was probably taken with an Olympus OM-2.

When Glen Canyon Dam was being built you could drive across the bridge and from an observation point, look down and see all the ant vehicles and ants working.
