Looking Down Hoover Dam

My mother would be very unhappy if she saw me leaning over the edge of the Hoover Dam to get this photograph. On the other hand, she doesn’t like to fly, so I was pretty sure she wouldn’t be around to chastise me. Some little boy ran and hopped up on the ledge near me and his mother was quick (and quite right) to scold him for it. His father, on the other hand, told her to lighten up a bit. That must be the joy of parenting. It’s a good thing my mother didn’t see me when I was on that bypass bridge looking back at the dam, either, but that’s another story. I can tell you that February is a wonderful time to visit Hoover Dam. The weather is comfortable and the crowd level is relatively. Compare that to summer time when it’s blistering hot and many times more crowded. It must be like a trip to hell in those months. Folks who work there tell me the handrails are so hot during the summer that you would rather fall down some steps than grab them. Please visit the blog at williambeem.com
