This is Gorge Dam not Diablo Dam. It is the dam down river from Diablo Dam. Originally it had a low diversion dam to send water to its generation palnt via penstocks tunnel through the mountain to Newhalem that is a bit downriver. After Diablo dam and Ross dam were complete Gorge Dam was raised to the current height. This increased the head of water so that more power is generated for the same total flow. Gorge lake behind the dam was not filled completely until the early 60s.
Beautiful Photo, nice shot! liked
Great colors, great compositon, great angle. In one word : great ;)
Love the slightly grainy aspect of the picture. There is nothing like B&W to give this kind of impression of "out from this world" which is fitting this site perfectly.

The store is not operated by Norhtern anymore. Local interests took over the operations.
This picture was taken before the renos. New store look much better now.
