Las Vegas, Nevada
This was an awesome tour of a facility that staggered the imagination. To realize this was something completed during a period of economic downturn in our nation's economy speaks well of the American work ethic and psyche. Today's technology, evidenced by the modern bridge adjacent to the dam, serves as not only an excellent viewing platform but a reminder of man's continuing quest to conquer and harness nature. The juxtaposition of the modern day bridge carrying huge trucks, and the 80 year old road at the top of the dam carrying mostly motorcycles simply proves that time marches on and that life can be leisurely or be spent in the fast lane. Hoover Dam is an icon of the American Century.
