Hoover Dam

Today for a change of pace we decided to hire a car and all four of us head to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. We left the razzle dazzle and noise of Vegas behind and after a short 40 minute car ride we arrived in Boulder City. The damn itself is colossal and we went on the power plant tour, 400ft into the dam. Fact fun of the day: the dam itself contains enough concrete to make a 4ft wide pavement/sidewalk around the equator of the world!

Our final stop of the day was the Vegas sign!
