Lahontan Dam    
Happy times at the spillway

A 2002 view
Great memories of cruising over the dam on a warm summer evening.
The spillway with nothing to spill
The intake
As you can see, the water was a bit low this year (2002)
Truckee River water adds to the mix
Writing in the cement when the dam was built (see inset for closeup)
The power house
This should be under water
The Truckee and the Carson aren't the only sources of water- there are a number of springs as well.
October 2009- water really low now.
