Grand Valley Diversion Roller Dam, Colorado River - William Bay

Grand Valley Diversion Roller Dam, Colorado River

Click image to see larger.

This dam was built over 100 years ago, and still stands today. It’s a remarkable site as you’re driving on the I-70 outside Palisade, Colorado in the De Beque canyon area. The diversion section of the dam┬ároutes water into the Grand Valley, as the rest continues on down the Colorado.

It’s such a cool dam, I pulled out my large 4×5 view camera out, and snapped this shot.
