Behind the dam

This is Theodore Roosevelt Lake.
Formed by the dam, it fills a good portion of the southern area of the Tonto basin located in the Tonto National Forest. It has a conservation level of 1,653,043 acre feet of water and a flood control level of 2,910,200 acre feet of water. The primary inflow comes from the Salt River and the tributary Tonto Creek. 
It is truly, a remarkable blue green oasis.
