    Lots of stories about this place. I was fortunate on one tour to have the public elevator fail -- trapping about 25 tourists for an hour and so our smaller group were led to through the non-public areas of the dam to the contractor elevator. Very, very, cool down there. All of the walkways are "finished" with marble and designs.

    One of the more interesting aspects of a dam tour... the dam was built in such a manner to purposely leak... thus allowing the water to cool the cement over time. So on every level in the dam, there is water flowing in the sidewalk gutters and you can hear water flowing.
