Alder Dam with Mavic 2 Pro


Alder Dam in the USA's Pacific Northwest was once one of the tallest in the world.  It sits on the Nisqually River, which drains a portion of the Cascades Mountains into Puget Sound.  The dam was built during World War II to supply electrical power to nearby Tacoma, which needed electricity to power its wartime production factories.  Seen here in this drone video by Yi Jun Luo, the dam stands 100 meters tall (around 330 ft.), 490 meters (around 1.6k ft.) wide, and an astonishing 37 meters (120 ft.) thick.
