These towers were built at an angle on purpose to facilitate bringing
the wires up from the generating station and then across country.

From Hoover Dam we drove to Kingman, Arizona, where we spent the night. - ------------- - Wednesday, October 12 - From Kingman we headed east on Historic U.S. Route 66.  This is - Hackberry, Arizona.  We were through here years ago and a hippie guy - lived here, groovin' on Route 66. There was no one around this morning. We left Route 66 here and got on eastbound I-40. Larry, at the Grand Canyon, of course! Enjoy the views! You can see the Colorado River at the bottom of the canyon.
We took a very short walk down the beginning of the Bright Angel Trail. With our friend Chuck, who was with us for part of this vacation.
You can see the trail ahead of us on the left and then further down the canyon. Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff, Arizona. - Some of the structures have been rebuilt by the park service. - Other structures have only been stabilized to protect them.
