On a recent trip way out west, our family was able to "experience" the Hoover Dam. In no way does this picture capture the length, depth, height, or width of the Hoover Dam. I've never been so happy to get off anything in my entire life. This is not a place for people who are afraid of heights - and I'm never going back there.
See this almost-finished, brand new bridge? It made me hang on for dear life, inside the car.
The arch above is merely a platform from which the builders "string" themselves while they work on the actual, half-finished bridge below.
The Grand Canyon doesn't make me feel any better, but at least it's beautiful! Just as I was ready to snap this shot, a graceful hawk appeared on the wind.
Randy and Abbey, the bravest souls I know!
The three of us. As soon as this picture was finished, I practically crawled to a safe spot, FAR away from the edge.
For lunch, we went to the El Tovar Hotel, which sits on the south rim of the canyon. Teddy Roosevelt entertained guests there in this dining room, which was built especially for him. Randy is Teddy Roosevelt's biggest fan. Sitting here made him happy!
More pictures to come!
