Hoover Dam is SO much more impressive in real life. Movies and pictures do not do it justice. The sheer size and architecture is amazing and should be truly appreciated in person. See those dots where the river narrows? Those are kayaks. This was taken on top of the dam looking down. The water is unbelievably clear.
Just before the dam overlook is the Lake Mead Overlook. Lake Mead (which was formed as a result of the dam) is BEAUTIFUL
This was the view from Henderson/Boulder City driving back towards Las Vegas:
We also explored the Las Vegas Speedway:
So just wanted to share a few things to explore besides the strip...more posts to come!
