December 4, 2009 Boulder Dam

Sue and I wanted to get away for a few days and visit my cousin, and her family in Las Vegas.

I have prepared a *.PDF that I have added three pictures of the bypass experience.

Enjoy!

Another concrete marvel!

I can remember taking the Dam tour years ago...you are lowered down into the 'innards' of the dam in a elevator, where you exit into a VERY long tunnel that takes you out to the down river face of the dam - you get a very graphic understanding of the huge amount of concrete used to make that structure!

pic's taken 12-26-09. Looks like they were busy last month.

Vinnie, Remember sending you a note concerning traffic approaching inspection station on NV side, I think it was a holiday weekend. We went to AZ about 8am today and the line wasn't bad at all. We came back around noon and the line on the NV side was backed up just about all the way to Boulder City, NV. I've never seen it that far back, probably due to Christmas travelers. So there's a positive note to getting older and getting up and around earlier in the day.

Mike, According to an inspector they are still shooting for completion near the end of 2010.

Hard to tell from the pics, but it looks like the supporting cables have been removed. Wow!

I am so glad I took your advice. My daughters were grumbling the whole way as we got them up early.. (ha ha.. the teenage girls slept in the dually so they had no choice but to get up and make room).

But boy are we glad we didnt have to wait in a line from Boulder City.. ugh. That would be horrible especially when it was 102* at 11:00 am!
