Photo Essay - Hoover Dam
This is another of my famous photo essays, this time Hoover Dam which I visited last week. I am going to describe each photo (you can click on for a larger version) and what that part of the dam does. We will move with the flow of the Colorado River, that is, north to south. The area around the dam is owned by the feds - but after that, to the west is Nevada and to the east is Arizona. Above is Lake Mead, the largest manmade lake in the world - until the Three Gorges Dam in China is finished. It is quite unimpressive to me. The lakes here in Wisconsin offer much better views.
UPDATE: For some "damn" reason a couple of the photos will not enlarge when clicked on - sorry about this.
