Hoover Dam

recommendation by goose

This massive dam, built in 1936 on the Colorado River, creates Lake Mead and generates the power for Las Vegas, which you won’t be surprised to hear is a whole hell of a lot (on the drive from Las Vegas to the Hoover Dam you can watch the power lines as they grow bigger and bigger). It is hard to imagine how beautiful this big Black Canyon would have been before it got filled with concrete, but remember this is downstream on the same river that formed the Grand Canyon.
