Roosevelt Dam - new & improved

The OLD Roosevelt Dam is in the center of the State of Arizona Seal. It is that important to Arizona. SR88 went across the top of the old dam and was the main road in the heart of Gila County connecting Globe/Miami & Payson. It was 2 Model T's wide. The dam was improved in the early 1990s and the new bridge was built. I climbed up Vineyard Trail and took these shots. My uncle's parents' friends & relatives from Piedmont Italy (Provenzia Maggiori) built this dam in 1911 in an incredible engineering feat. This Dam made modern Arizona possible. The renovations in 1991 took it off the National Historic Monuments listing. So I can't post it to that Flickr group and pick up tons of views and favs.
