The Glen Dam, which controls the flow of the Colorado River and generates electricity, is located in the arid Southwest of the United States, where the dam's mission is to store water for this particularly arid part of the country. It is 220 meters high and the arched top is 470 meters long. There is a walkway to view and take pictures on the top of the dam.
The Colorado River is a river flowing southwest of the United States and northwest of Mexico. It is about 2333 kilometers long and some of it disappears to the west of the Rockies. The entire Colorado River system flows mostly into the Gulf of California, the main source of freshwater, and the other flows south to Mexico, but is not out to sea. In 1540, Spanish explorer Melchior Diaz was the first to explore and document the Colorado River. A major river of North America. Found in the Rocky Mountains of north-central Colorado in the western United States, it is melted by heavy snow to provide water and flow southwestwards, opening a twisting 2330km waterway into the Gulf of California. The origin of the watershed is the western edge of the Rocky Mountains, and the main stream is from Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. A small number of origins are in Sonora, Mexico. The main stream flows from Colorado through Utah, Arizona, and then into the border rivers of Nevada, Arizona, and California.
The weather was great, water was really cold about 60 degrees or less, needless to say we didn’t jump in even though
Well worth the visit, very fun place.
I prefer the Grand Canyon. It's not too famous.
