Change of Scenery in Nevada! -- Sunday, May 21, 2017

OK, Willie, I tell myself, Don't take photos.  You have seen this scenery and have a ton of photos of the majestic mountains, valleys, rivers.  Sit back and enjoy the ride.

Just gotta shoot this one!  I know as we go around the curve, we will see an awesome valley. Camera is ready.

Yep!  There is a scene I like.  Down, down the hill.

And soon we are at Hoover Dam.  

Herb reminds me about previous rides across the dam on the motorcycle, when we were allowed to stop anywhere to view Lake Mead and the power generating structures.  However, the last time we came, we were on the BMW motorcycle soon after Nine Eleven and security was heightened.  There were officials stationed along the road over the dam to keep traffic moving, moving, moving, and we were not able to stop to enjoy the views.

Today it is different.  The road has moved from on top the dam, but has areas to park near the Visitors Center and beyond.  We chose to drive across, then find a parking area so we could walk to the different views.

Did I mention it was hot?  Really hot!  We saw folks walking across the bridge for a vantage view, but the lines seemed to stretch for miles and it would take a really long time for us to do this in the oppressive heat, so we opt to get quick shots and back into the air conditioned car.
