Hoover Dam panorama

The Hoover Dam’s immense size makes it difficult to photograph. Nevertheless, when staring at such an amazing sight it’s hard to do anything other than take a picture.

I’ve been sitting on these photos for 7 years, so you’ll notice in the photo below that the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge is still in the early stages of construction.

If you ever travel to Las Vegas, a side-trip to the Hoover Dam is an absolute must. It is impressive not only for its size and beauty, but also for the fact that it was completed in 1936.
