Hoover Dam is really an amazing technological wonder.   It was built during the 1930’s to dam the Colorado River to provide water for the southwestern United States.   If you visit, I recommend taking time for the “dam tour”.   It is pretty neat inside.   One of the things I found most interesting was that they built a pipe factory onsite just to build the giant pipes for the water to flow through since they would be to large to ship there.   I hope you enjoy the pictures.   rk
