Croton Dam

While in NY mom and I drove up to the Croton Dam to take in the sights and sounds of the Croton Dam. We'd been there years ago but it was so lovely to go back. This time we also made our way to the top of the dam and walked all the way across the span! 
Dams just fascinate me. The engineering behind them, the beauty of the falls, the fragility of a wall containing mass amounts of water. Even more amazing to think that this was made in the early 1900s! Just amazing.

Just beautiful! Once again, you find the best things to see and photograph! (Side note: my niece and her husband visited your fine city this past weekend, and she said she fell in love with it and wants to come back!!!)

That looks like a beautiful spot. My palms get sweaty just thinking of the height but I'd still go up there!

What a great spot - I love all that water. And the curves/lines of the bridge. Very visually appealing!

The Croton Dan is amazing. I wonder how the falls looked before it was built?

I love water in all its forms but these forms are quite beautiful.
