The LMNRA encompasses nearly 1.5 million acres of the eastern Mojave desert, and the western edge of the Grand Canyon plateau. The recreation area also includes two modern engineering wonders of the world. The first is the Hoover Dam, the second being the O'Callaghan/Tillman Memorial bridge. Completed 75 years apart, the two concrete marvels straddle the Colorado River, for different purposes, which will be explained in future posts, Though within the LMNRA, the Hoover Dam is administered by the Bureau of Reclamation.
