Dam!!

Early afternoon, flat lighting... worse lighting of the day for photographers... but we are playing tourists. After years of crossing the Hoover Dam to get to Las Vegas, we took an afternoon to visit the bypass bridge and honor all those trips across a national icon.

In the middle of the bridge is the "official" Arizona/ Nevada border, so here is Ruth in two States at the same time
