After working “constantly” during the past two weeks, it was finally time
to get away from the hustle & bustle of the Vegas Strip for a quick road trip
to the Hoover Dam. It’s a nice drive through the desert, past Lake Mead
and along the Colorado River. Today I was in BOTH Nevada and Arizona!!!


I’ve been there before… and it’s still just a big slab of cement!
Still a modern marvel of technology. Still impressive. Still huge.



The coolest part this time was the fact that they are currently building
a new highway to cross the Colorado River – most likely to lessen the
traffic on top of Hoover Dam. It was pretty cool to see the large bridge
spanning across the river and not quite finished!!!


Back in Vegas, it was an afternoon by the pool… followed by a night in Venice!
Yes… Venice. Or at least something very similar as only Vegas can do!!!
Dinner at a great Italian restaurant celebrating the big job being done!




And a sign of things to come…
tomorrow night – and I can’t wait!!!
