Managing Water in the West: Hoover Dam
We thought we were reliving Apocalypse Now or Black Hawk Dawn with all the noise from the tour helicopters that filled the sky this morning.
But getting up early (1 1/2 hours before the visitor center opens) paid off because I was able to take photos without the hordes of tourists in the background.
The Hoover Dam is an incredible engineering marvel that provides water to the lower valley.
The Art Deco elements at the dam can be found everywhere.
The tour below and through the dam are led by guides who are most knowledgeable–ask them anything and they’ll have the answer.
What can I say? You have to see it.
