When I visited Hoover Dam in Nevada it was a late afternoon in November. Although the sun was still out things were becoming shadowy, which added to the drama of the scenery. I had the opportunity to stand on an observation deck with an unobstructed view of the dam. It was so massive that I just stood and stared at it for a long time. This picture shows the shadow of the bypass bridge against the dam. After that I walked on the sidewalk toward Lake Mead and I could see shadows forming there too. Here is some of what I saw.

In keeping with the theme of this blog I have been traveling a lot lately. A few weeks ago I was in North Carolina and Tennessee and I saw lots of mountains as well as the fall foliage. Last week I was in Nevada and I had the opportunity to see Hoover Dam. There is quite a contrast between the scenery in the southeast and the west.

I didn’t know that Hoover Dam is in both Nevada and Arizona, and there is a time difference. You can see that I can walk fast (or slow depending on which time zone you follow).
