My Photographic Journey Around America

Grand Coulee Dam

One of the greatest public works projects in American history, the Grand Coulee Dam dwarfs Hoover Dam in almost every way. This dam opened the area to agriculture, provided water and electricity, and created thousands of jobs during the Great Depression. I’m not a big dam person, but this one is really impressive. For over 40 years, this was the largest hydroelectric project in the world.
