The Hoover Dam and the O'Callaghan/Tillman Memorial Bridge
One of the modern engineering wonders of the world, the Hoover Dam ((began in 1931) and the O'Callaghan/Tillman Memorial Bridge (begun in 2005) are two very imposing structures. The Hoover Dam provides control of the waters of the Colorado River (plus hydro-electric, recreation) while the O'Callaghan/Tillman Memorial Bridge provides better access to the highway systems of the southwest. The dam and the bridge are awe inspiring, and well worth the time spent visiting them.
I spend many hours taking photographs of the two structures, and enjoy the reactions of the visitors as they take their own photos. I will add information about the dam and the bridge, so stay tuned.
