The Hoover Dam! The Thing of the Moment North American Tour Continues

I remember back when I was a wee little baby WPA photographer. This photo was taken before they closed the dam creating what you kids today call Lake Mead. (photographer's note: The ABOVE photo is a 'derivative work' ala The Dove Campaign for Real Beauty.) And if hadn't been for you pesky kids, I'd have owned the whole amusement park!

  2. I actually was there the year I was pregnant with Amy (she's 33+ now) and don't remember a lot about it because I was as sick as a dog. But thanks for the memory regardless!

    HAVE BEEN ACROSS THE DAM WITH MY FOLKS ON TRIPS WHEN I WAS YOUNG AND AFTER DAD PASSED I DROVE MY MOTHER ACROSS WHEN WE WERE GOING TO THE RANCH
    NEAR AREA FIFTY-ONE.
    I NOW CROSS OVER THE SONORA PASS TO HEAD FOR THE
    RANCH AND MAYBE THIS YEAR WILL DRIVE ON JUST TO
    ENJOY THE PLACE'S I USED TO GO. FOR AS OF JULY
    I'LL BE SIXTY-SIX AND HAD BETTER ENJOY WHILE I
    STILL CAN THE BREATH TAKING THINGS OF BOTH GOD
    AND MAN OF WHICH THE DAM THE COUNTRY AND PHOTO'S
    ARE ALL PART OF.
