Photos: Lake Tawakoni Iron Bridge Dam in East Texas

I used to live live a few miles from the Iron Bridge Dam at Lake Tawakoni. It was cool living so close to a dam. There was something interesting and mysterious about it to us. It was big, ugly, and had a lot of restrictions for getting near it.

One evening when I saw a gorgeous sunset happening, I jumped into my car and drove to the dam to get his photo of it at sunset. Unfortunately, no water was flowing over it at the time but it still came out really pretty!

Sometimes the dam overflowed with mass amounts of rushing water, it was amazing to see and extremely loud.

Occasionally, after a good rain, water would lightly flow over it.
