When we’re in Phoenix for the winter, we try to make a day trip to Roosevelt Dam. I’m not sure why. There’s just something iconic about it. Maybe it’s the sight of all that water in an otherwise sere landscape. Maybe it’s the colour of the rocks. Maybe it’s the adjacent bridge. I mean, a bridge is like chocolate: never wrong.
Maybe it’s the year-over-year variety in the scenery. No, that’s definitely not it. It all pretty much looks (and photographs) the same every year. (The top three collages are photos taken a few weeks ago; the bottom set was taken two years ago, in Mar 2017.)
But there is definitely something about it that makes it worth the trip. Every time; time and again.
