Day 6 of 365 - Byrd Locks and Dam

I had to go to Huntingon, WV today and on the way home I stopped at the Robert C. Byrd locks and dam. The locks and dam were built from 1935-1937. The dam has 8 roller gates. This is the first roller gate on the Ohio side of the Ohio River. It had been raining earlier today but began clearing on the way home allowing for amazing skies when I arrived at the dam.
