While I was in Las Vegas last month, on the way back from Hoover Dam we stopped at a park in Boulder City. The mountain goats come down from the hills to cool off.
The one standing on the bench must think he is a person!
They congregate here and eat the green grass.
Can you see the heard lying in the shade here?
You can actually walk right up to them and they don't run away
I would be a bit cautious if I had a child though since some of these goats have some pretty bit horns.
Some have been tagged and they are protected. I think they know this because they are very laid back and just go about their business of eating and resting

While I was in Vegas my oldest Son took me to see the new bridge at Hoover Dam
The drought in Vegas has caused the water lake to be down further usual, as you can see
The last time I was actually at the dam was in 1996 on my honeymoon. The water was gushing over the dam then.
Lake Mead is still as beautiful but look how far down the water line is.
This is the new bridge over the dam.
Pretty big I would say!
This was taken from the old hwy.
