Davis Dam
« on: November 23, 2014, 07:52:01 am »
Saturday's ride & walk was to Davis Dam:

The Davis Dam and Powerplant facility was constructed by the Bureau of Reclamation in Pyramid Canyon, 67 miles downstream from Hoover Dam. The site is about 10 miles north of the point where Arizona, Nevada and California meet, and approximately 2 miles upstream from the Laughlin, Nevada/Bullhead City, Arizona, communities. The dam created Lake Mohave.

  Thank you again for the video and stills.
  Does this mean you can no longer drive across the dam ??
  Do you have any pictures of Kathrin's Landing?  I camped there for a week in July 1973. Hot, you bet, but lots of fun.

  Mark, thank you again for all your videos.
  I lived in Lake Havasu from 1993 until 2003 and rode all over the area but never got off the bike and took a little walk as you and Duchess do.
  I now live near Yosemite but plan on riding to the Havasu area in the future. I want to ride up to Oatman via Golden Shores and back to Laughlin.
 Perhaps we can hook up for a ride.
