Fri, Oct 30, 2020-Hoover Dam



 We’ve been to Hoover Dam 3-4 times over the years but it never fails to take our breath away! If you’ve never been there, here are a couple of pics to demonstrate its size and beauty:


The lake is extraordinarily low now as you can see in the pics but that’s a result of the drought over the past few years. One amazing fact is that the dam is pyramidal shaped. It’s 726 feet high and 660 feet wide at its base! The “new” bridge was built in 2010 and it’s 1700 feet downstream from the dam and is 886 feet above the Colorado River. All in all, the Hoover Dam is an amazing structure that has been doing its job superbly for over 80 years!
