Detroit Dam - Photo by Dan Meyers

Detroit Dam is a giant gravity dam that is part of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Willamette Valley Project, an extensive system of dams originally designed for flood control on the river’s tributaries and created the Detroit Lake – more than 9 miles (14 km) long with 32 miles (51 km) of shoreline. The dam creates a unique blend of the majesty of the mountains and evergreens intertwined with might of mankind. The dam emerges from the woods gradually but even at a glance you can get the feel of its massive size. On top of that, rarely does nature and civilization blend as beautifully as it does here.
