I passed through Boulder City last fall when traveling with Joel on our way back from Tucson, so I was familar with the Boulder Campground and looking forward to crashing for a day or so before heading north to Reno. The Wind Gods heard my plea from the other day and the winds were much calmer and the drive easy.
I wanted to check out the visitor center and tour Hoover Dam and walk the new bridge bypass while here as well as explore some of the viewpoints of Lake Meade. Hoover Dam is an engineering wonder and I still marvel at all of the man hours it took to built and the resulting big lake..Lake Meade. Of course with the forming of Lake Meade came a thirsty population in the form of Las Vegas
There are several tours offered at the dam and Sandi and I opted for the shorter one which takes you down inside . The picture below is the concrete part of the dam holding Lake Meade back. I was standing at the the base of it.
Tomorrow I head back to Reno to drop Sandi off. I won't make it in one day but should be there by Sunday. Sandi's husband is anxious to have her back.
