It is so good to be back home. We got in last night and now I have all the yucky unpacking and cleaning to do. We did our best to help out Nevada's economy! We did have a good time, but I never did take any pictures outside because it was just too HOT! It zapped all our energy if we were out in it too long. It was 107 one day and then it was 109 and very windy. I did manage to take some pictures of our trip to Hoover Dam. We had to take a little break from Vegas and drove to the dam on Sunday. This was our first time going to it and we made a couple of stops in the national park where Lake Mead is and took some pictures.
This was taken from the car on the drive to Lake Mead.
The terrain is so vastly different than Georgia's that's for sure.
This was my first shot of Lake Mead.
It was so pretty in person, but so hot that we could not stay out very long.
This is the new bridge that has been built to cut down on the traffic on the road that now goes to Hoover Dam and Arizona.
We were told to go early to avoid the heavy traffic. We crept along for about twenty minutes in this, but when we left it was backed up for miles. Early is good.
We were fascinated with the size of this bridge. How on earth do they build these up this high and stuck in rock?
Then we finally made it to Hoover Dam.
Hope you enjoyed the tour. Glad you could stay cool while you looked at it. I was burning up. We did not take the tour you pay for that tells the history of it. As I have said before it was just too hot.
Linking to A Southern Daydreamer for outdoor Wednesday.
Thanks so much for all the comments while I was out of town and doing this sporadically.
I will try to do better now. I have got to start moving my hiney though. When I saw a picture that Mr. Savvy took of me it woke this girl up. Back to walking and eating right I will go. So glad it is getting cooler out. Going to have to quit sitting at the computer so much.
Y'all come back now,
