    Was just watching some Highwaymen videos on Youtube and noticed this shot. I swore the dam and associated bridge did not look right for "a place called Boulder on the mighty Colorado".

    Anyone familiar enough with both to confirm this is the still impressive Glen Canyon Dam?

    This is a screen capture 1:37 into the video

    Yes that is the Glen Canyon dam. Boulder has three verticle reinforcements as opposed to the two seen here.
