An awesome structure! An awesome drive for strangers to this part of the country. An awesome workout for two seniors who sat on the couch all winter. These are Bing images; mine will show up after I'm sitting back at my computer. This made the cool weather worth it. Hoover Dam, once known as Boulder Dam, being close to Boulder City, is an awesome engineering construction located on the border between Nevada and Arizona. Unfortunately, in these times, Lake Mead's water table is down 14%. All the more reason to stay in Michigan. Fresh water will be the most precious commodity in the future. I'm looking forward to reading the history this afternoon poolside. I'm curious about the amount of electrical power this dam generates.
