Ok, it has been a really long time since I posted. I am ashamed.
A couple of weeks ago, my wife and I went to Las Vegas to celebrate our anniversary. It was a jam-packed trip with seeing shows and going on hikes and scenic drives. On the only full day we were there, we went to the Hoover Dam. It was pretty amazing, and really makes you appreciate engineering. Here are some pictures from that trip.
This is a picture of Lake Mead. If you look at a big version of this, you can clearly see how much the water level is down. The dock has been moved something like a hundred feet or so down the beach so it can stay in the water. Pretty amazing. I wonder how long Lake Mead will exist before the whole thing just dries up.
