Riding the canyon rim above the Snake River the other day, I noticed a lot of activity below on one of the hydro plants. When I rode up a bit later, I had timed it just right, to watch them load a 60,000 lb. turbine rotor using a 175 ton bridge crane onto a Mack truck and trailer combo. This was very exciting stuff for one who has his own hydro setup (connected to the same utilities grid), is in the crane business, and whose crane truck has a Mack chassis! The crew were very good about letting me watch and get pretty close, after I told them I was an enthusiast, it made an already good day even better.
