Amazing Hoover Dam!

Today we had the chance to see Hoover Dam and walk across the adjacent bridge. Both were quite impressive. It is a weird experience to be down inside a dam with water flowing over you to the turbines to make electricity. The views were spectacular!

We started our day with a beautiful sunrise over Lake Mead. It is wonderful being in the Mohave Desert with its harsh yet beautiful setting.
