Anyhow Becky and I decided to drive down to Phoenix. Richie and Tara also rented a car and we all drove down to see Hoover Dam. When we were here last, they were working on the construction of the new bridge across the gorge so that traffic would not need to be routed over the dam. Tourist can still drive down to the dam and across it to the Arizona side. So we took some dam pictures and went to the dam store.
|Ten years ago. Still have the woman and the t-shirt.|
At the other parking lot, I found a covered spot, not labeled handicapped (fortunately they don't charge handicap the ten bucks to park). I got Iris out and walked her all over the dam and no one said a word to me. We just pretended that she was my service dog.
|The spillway was high and dry.|
|Patrick straddles the Arizona/Nevada line. There used to be a large line painted across the road with it labeled but now all there is left is this plaque.|
|A Lake Mead marina. Lots of boats and people out on the water but the water has an algae in it and the park service was telling people to stay out of the water.|
