Awesome. The visitors center was first rate. I love Dams and learning all about how they were built and I felt good about that after seeing everything. A very industrial looking dam with all the working parts normally covered by the outer walls of a dam were exposed. Neat. Especially I liked that they left the big cable car at the top of the hill and you could see exactly where it was used with the hillside cut out for it. Def a stop to make if you love Dams like I do!
Neat little stop to learn how the lake was made. Lots of cool info and most of the displays worked! Not 5 stars because a lot of the videos look like they are as old as me (from the 90's) and there was no one there though it looked like someone was supposed to be. Still a cool short stop!
