  The "crooked" towers at Hoover Dam

We took a half day trip with Vision Holidays to Hoover Dam with a stop at Lake Mead. It was actually pretty cheap, and ended up being a good deal for the price.

The tour bus picked us up at our hotel in the morning. The bus driver was hilarious and kept the whole bus laughing and smiling during the trip. I've had some bad tour guides before, but this lady was top notch. She pointed out places of interest to us all along the way.

The Hoover Dam was definitely a sight to see. We wandered all over and looked at all of the exhibits. It was scorching that day, but since we only had a couple of hours there it was okay. It was really touching to see the monuments to the men who lost their lives during the construction of the dam. It's unfortunate that they no longer allow visitors into the underground of the dam, but we were able to see some interesting things anyway.

The stop at Lake Mead was only for a few minutes. Just enough time for everyone to get off the bus and snap a few shots. It was very pretty though, and I was able to get some pretty great pictures.
