This is the home of hydro-electric power and worth stopping to look if you are passing. It's rather industrial but at the time of construction was the largest hydro-electric generating station in the world.

The building is not open for tours, but you could park at either the small roadside parking lot at the south end of the plant or the floral clock and view the penstocks on the edge of the gorge.
