Horseshoe Dam is one of the dams on the Verde River northeast of Phoenix, Arizona. The spring snow melt of 2010 made a high flow rate on the river, which created the conditions that made these dramatic images possible. There is a walkway under the lip of the spillway that people can walk on, which is where I made the second image on this page. The panorama is made from nine overlapping images.
