Located in Black Canyon on the Colorado River, the Hoover Dam was once the largest dam in the world. It is an outstanding achievement, noteworthy not only for its enormous dimensions, complex design and intricate construction, but also for its illustration of mans outstanding ability to overcome the desert’s summer sun, the vagaries of a treacherous river and the extreme hazards of great heights on the chasm’s sheer walls. The building of the dam also created Lake Mead, North America’s largest man-made reservoir.
