Contest #40 Answer

The answer to #40 is the Grand Coulee Dam on the Columbia River in Washington State. It is the fourth largest hydroelectric dam in the world and the largest in the United States. It is taller than the Great Pyramid at its highest point and over a mile wide. I don’t know why, but all the dams I visit never look as big as the numbers make them out to be. I think it is because they look small in their setting which is usually much larger than the dam itself.
