I have only one word for my Sunday adventure today: AMAZING.
Our first stop was breakfast in Boulder City. It was part of our tour package, so Luis paid. We were right by the Hoover Dam at that point, so we drove on over and walked up and then out onto the recently completely Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge. Our view of the dam used to require a 4 hour hike to take in...but we walked out on to the bridge in about 10 minutes and enjoyed. We snapped a few photos, listened to Luis explain some different features and stories about the "Hugh-ver Dam" in his thick accent and then headed out again. It would be nice to come back some day so I can take the actual dam tour, but for now my dam photos will have to suffice.
