The Teton Dam

The date June 5th 1976 marked the end of an era. On this day the Teton Dam located in Eastern Idaho crumbled and flooded the valley below. The disaster brought attention to the unchecked practice of dam building by the Bureau of Reclamation.

Over a quarter of a century later, the topic of the dam rarely becomes the center of conversation, but off in the distance lies a monum
ent to the disastrous day. A twenty mile stretch of a once pristine river canyon lies in ruins, not much different from how it was left more then twenty-five years earlier.
