Grand Coulee from side
The scope of the Grand Coulee Dam is so large that there are viewing platforms for miles around, all with terrific views of the mile-long dam.
The Grand Coulee Dam holds back the Columbia River and creates massive amounts of power from the water's flow. Here, the Columbia flows away from the dam.
Inside a booth at the visitors center, four giant lasers project the light show onto the dam each day at 10 p.m.
