Bridge

BridgeWhen we saw this huge bridge, my son, husband, and I had our jaws open in surprise.  When you enter the Hoover Dam area in Nevada, to your right, you are greeted by this giant.  You can see the little people on and next to the bridge to give you an idea of its enormity.  This second photo is a view from beside it as we drove into the Hoover Dam area and saw it for the first time.  It’s called the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge and was completed in 2010.

Between Nevada & Arizona

Hoover Dam. Between Nevada and Arizona, my family and I found the Hoover Dam. During Spring Break this year, we took a plane trip to Las Vegas, Nevada; and, from there, we took a road trip to the Grand Canyon.  The Hoover Dam was one of the sights between Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon.

This post is my literal take on WordPress’s Weekly Photo Challenge. This week, the theme is “Between”.


Hoover Chipmunk

Chipmunk at Hoover March 2014 My family and I were pleasantly surprised to see this little chipmunk scurry across the rocks as we explored Hoover Dam on our drive from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. Fortunely, I had my camera attached to me and became stealthy enough to capture the little rascal looking for food before it raced away never to be seen by us again. I’m really happy with the result considering I didn’t have much time to react or plan.
