Visiting Hoover Dam

arizona friends

Visited Arizona first.  Had a blast.  Met several nice folk, and hope to introduce the blog through an outdoor journal in the near future.

After driving through Hoover Dam at least four times, I finally stopped by to check it out.  Wanted the full tour (includes the space inside the dam), but had to settle for the generator tour.  Oh well.  I can check it out next time.

FYI:  Hoover Dam uses metal detectors and xray machines.

    Very cool Derek. Looks like a great time. I have always wanted to visit that part of the country and witness the engineering marvel that is the Hoover Dam. Great photographs as well.

    Thanks, Dan! Hoover Dam is quite something.

    Haven’t been to Hoover Dam in years (I was born at Nellis AFB and spent my early years in Las Vegas), I have done repair on some of their stuff back when I was a motor and generator winder. Fixed one of the exciters on those big generators once; they shipped it to us, and it was my job to repair it.
