Gibson Reservoir | Sun Canyon | Gibson Dam
This day drive is full of diverse landscapes. The sun river flows from into the Missouri in Great Falls, Montana but it starts in the Rocky Mountains. Catch Sun Canyon Road in Augusta, and take that two lane road to a mountain meadow where Gibson Dam stands as a fortress, 199 feet high. This unassuming structure was the model used for Hoover Dam and provides for year-round recreation at Gibson Reservoir. Hike, fish, kayak, and paddleboard here.
