3 Sixty 5 Photography: 148 The Hoover Dam. 

“We are here to celebrate the completion of the greatest dam in the world, rising 726 feet above the bedrock of the river and altering the geography of a whole region; we are here to see the creation of the largest artificial lake in the world—115 miles long…All these dimensions are superlative.  They represent and embody the accumulated engineering knowledge and experience of centuries; and when we behold them it is fitting that we pay tribute to the genius of their designers.  We recognize also the energy, resourcefulness and zeal of the builders…But especially, we express our gratitude to the thousands of workers who gave brain and brawn to this great work of construction.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt
