When I grew up, we almost always referred to the dam as Boulder Dam, rather than Hoover Dam. Maybe that had to do with the fact that I grew up in a democratic, union household.
Actually, it shouldn’t be the Boulder Dam either. While Boulder Canyon was the original site selected, it turned out there was a geologic fault right down the middle of that canyon, so they kept looking until settling on Black Canyon.
This is a continuation of a series of photo-journals of things to see near Las Vegas.
Next up will be Red Rock Canyon.
