A Visit to the Grand Coulee Dam -- a HUGE Structure
While we traveled the Coulee Scenic Corridor, we naturally wanted to touch base with one of the star attractions of the highway, the Grand Coulee Dam.
Below the dam, we got the full view of the enormous concrete project. Utilizing some 12,000,000 cubic yards of concrete, which we learned is equal to a 4' wide sidewalk going around the world -- twice! That is a lot of concrete!
