The Peace Canyon Dam and powerhouse. The structure on the upper right is the power house, in the middle-left is the spill way.
The Dinosaur Reservoir is on the left upper left of the photo. The earth structure in the reservoir behind the dam is an anti-vortex dyke to protect the dam against debris and prevent reservoir users from getting to close to the dam for safety reasons.
