Hikers Brant Brantman and Brian McNitt (and dog Kel) watch work on the Blue Lake Dam project Wednesday afternoon (2-6-13) from the east side of the gorge. On the other side, a pair of trackhoes prepares a site for a construction crane. The $140-million project will raise the dam 83-feet. Brantman and McNitt report feeling a touch of vertigo just standing this close to the edge of the gorge. It’s a good thing the trackhoe drivers are sitting down!
