We only had an hour here, so we were unable to see the inner workings of Hoover Dam. We chose to walk around the top of the dam and look out from the observation deck instead. Notice the cars driving on top of the dam. In about 2 years, the new road across the canyon over the Colorado River should be finished. Then no vehicles will be allowed across the Dam. The building of the road began after 9/11.
This was a cool looking cactus outside a ranch where we ate lunch.
