Picture of the Day: Hoover Dam

dam1

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
