This may not be one of the more spectacular dams you see, but it's not too common to have the outflow coming out the way it does at Pathfinder - nor for that part to be in such a narrow canyon.
Below the outflow are a group of pelicans who seem to love the forceful water here - maybe there's a bunch of fish there as well...
A view across the overflow as we went around to the actual dam. (Towards Pyramid Peak - and the weather is not really holding.)
Looking down at the outflow from the dam.
The outflow via a set of pipes is rather inelegant, but it does the job. Interesting to note some seepage from the rocks, I guess there are other paths through, maybe one will break through one day to make an alternate outflow.
A gif is coming for you of the above, @drakernoise - it's amazing how many little slivers had to come off the pair of pictures to make it work, but it's a good one.
Here's a video of Pathfinder Dam...
And during overflow...
Below, we have more pictures of flowers. First, sedum lanceolatum.
More Potentilla arguta or Sticky Cinquefoil
Agoseris glauca or False/Mountain Dandelion and probably Rosa woodsii one of our wild roses.
Photos taken by myself in June 2020 with my Nikon D7200.
