My sister Sue came for a visit and we made a trip down to Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. It was a pleasant day, not too busy with visitors and the weather was nice though a bit windy. Still we had a great time checking out the dam and we were also able to see how far along the new bridge over the Colorado River is coming. Lake Mead is very low but a beautiful shade of blue and clear enough we could see fish swimming beneath the water. Hoover Dam is truly a amazing feat!
