Source Caption: MGM Warning for those who equate it to 666! This is Jim Wilsons favorite gravel pit being converted to the infamous MGM lake. They took tons of fill for the tower and bus depot. The lake was supposed to fill within 3-5 feet on the rim and fell about 20 feet short of that. One the the biggest engineering blunders in Reno history.
