Reclamation Realty Specialist Brandon Barrow took the photo of these brilliant cactus blooms south of Davis Dam along the Colorado River Heritage Greenway Park and Trail, located down river from Davis Dam in Laughlin, Nev.
Davis Dam spans the Colorado River in Pyramid Canyon 67 miles downstream from Hoover Dam and 88 miles upstream from Parker Dam. The Mexican Treaty of 1944 required the United States to construct Davis Dam for regulation of water to be delivered to Mexico. The reservoir formed by the dam, Lake Mohave, is used for that purpose through integrated operations of Hoover and Davis Powerplants. on.doi.gov/YatJGL
