Hoover Dam is HUGE!!!

We have arrived!!! Silly me forgot the camera cable so I am unable to share any pictures. Our flight out of Kalamazoo was delayed but we made our connecting flight okay and arrived in Las vegas at 10am Pacific time. So we had all day to head out and tour. Hoover Dam is HUGE!!! And so is Lake Mead. Really beautiful. Jaclyn of course had to buy keychains. I found a Chip and Dip Lovers Cookbook in the gift shop there of all places. It is a southwestern cookbook. Looks like some yummy dips in family gatherings in the future. We went on the plant tour and we saw the generators, etc. While we all enjoyed it, Jack did particularly.

Driving from the Hoover Dam to Kingman, Arizona is BARREN. There are mountains and land that is just filled with sage brush, sand and rock. No trees. We have never seen anything like that before. We are in Kingman staying on Route 66. Our bodies are on Michigan time and we were up at 3:30 this morning. We are going to the Grand Canyon today! I am really looking forward to it. Have a great day!!!!

Oh gosh that is so exciting!! Don't forget that you are in desert area, so you won't see much on those long highway drives! So glad you got there ok....are you still bonkers? So does Jacklyn collect key chains?

Sounds like you are having a great time--oh my, The Daams at the Dam!

Yay for Jack getting to check out all the "guy stuff" at the dam. We went on that tour when I was a teen and I still remember it. Umm, don't remember the drive to AZ...like you said, not much out there 'cept sagebrush! Hope you had a big 'ole tumbleweed blow on by!


Enjoy and safe travels~
