Hoover Dam

 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. 
 
 From the other side of the old hwy
This is the new bridge over the dam. 
 
Pretty big I would say!

Great post of the bridge. I don't think I'd want to live out there for fear of a water shortage!

The water really is down, hopefily they will have some rainfall this year!
the only bummer about the new bridge is you can't see the dam when driving over it now :0(
hugs Lynn
Love your steampunk case in your previous post!
