Hoover Dam Day 76

ISO 1000 ƒ/22 1/125

I had to goto a colleagues funeral service today in Boulder City,NV. So I decided to go do some sightseeing after the service. Boulder City is about 30 miles southeast of Las Vegas. Boulder City started as a place to house the workers that were building Boulder Dam, which was renamed Hoover Dam. Here’s a wiki link about Boulder City http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boulder_City,_Nevada
When I was a kid I remember going on school field trips through the dam and until last year the highway connecting Las Vegas to Phoenix crossed the dam. Last Year they opened the O’Callaghan-Tillman bridge to bypass dam. The bridge also has a pedestrian lane that you can walk across. It was really windy today and I will say that I was a bit scared hanging over the railing taking this photo. It’s 840’ down to the river below and I am amazed at the workers that actually built it, they are far braver than I. Here’s a wiki link about the bridge: http://bit.ly/qKm7a4
