On the tour, deep into the bowels of the dam.

Hydroelectric generators The view of the dam from the visitors' center overlook on the Nevada side. Looking straight down at the dam from the overlook. Looking way down to the buildings with the generators.
These towers were built at an angle on purpose to facilitate bringing - the wires up from the generating station and then across country. The cranes up high are starting on a bypass bridge to take the highway off the dam's top. This is a model they had of the future bridge. The view you see looking down from the top center of the dam.
Now back on the Arizona side, looking across the dam toward the visitors' center. 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.
