I'm so glad you could stop by. This is my personal blog of daily life and my journey through life. You will find a strong emphasis on family and friends as well as finding my ancestors through genealogy. Unlike my other blogs this blog is more of a catch-all so any topic is fair game.

Looking Down the Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam
Looking Down the Hoover Dam
May 11, 2011

The Hoover Dam is a huge tourist attraction only 30 minutes from Las Vegas.  It is well worth visiting even if you don't take the tour.  The drive from Las Vegas to the Hoover Dam is beautiful, driving home there is no doubt you are in a desert.  We have yet to take one of the dam tours or flying over the dam but we visit almost every trip.  Standing on the dam and looking over is one of the most eerie, profound feelings I've experienced.  Definitely do not look over the dam if you have a fear of heights.  It surprises me that the wall over the dam preventing visitors from accidentally toppling over is not very high.  It's only hip level on me and I'm not very tall.  It ends right there too with nothing stopping visitors from sitting on the wall or preventing an accidental fall.  It is a magnificent view!
