Hoover Dam part 2

This is us at Hoover Dam. We did a bus tour from Vegas which included a tour of the power station. As there were only 6 people including us in our tour group we left early and got to see a lot more than you usually do on the same tour. The driver took us over to the Arizona side to look at the dam from that side which meant we got to drive over it and also got to see the massive overflow tunnels. Down inside the powerstation we went quite a way below ground and some of teh walls were wet which was a little disconcerting. We only got the basic tour, I think scott would have really enjoyed the extended tour had we known about it beforehand. The little bits that stick up on the dam at either end are toilets they have big Art Deco brass doors to get inside and then it is institutional green tiles and what i imagine is the original decor, on entering you think it is going to be all flash but then no. It was really awesome anyway and a gorgeous sunny day as you can see.
