Crossing items off the list – Hoover Dam.

Hoover Dam was first.  I had driven over the dam back in 2001, but there had not been any time to stop or take a dam tour.  This time I was going to enjoy seeing though I am no longer able to take part in the tour.  There are ample parking areas to be able to get great views of this giant structure.

The road no longer passes over the dam with the contruction of the new bridge, which takes all traffic high over the dam.  Walking tours of the bridge are popular.

Lake Mead, created by the dam and a popular recreation area, is located in a lovely valley some thirty miles south of Las Vegas.Lake Mead 003
