The last of the pictures (scanned) that we took on the FIRST trip across the USA
This is Hoover Dam power plant.
This is the Colorado River after leaving the Dam. Most of us did not know that the Colorado River many times dried up before the Dam was built. Since the dam holds Lake Mead and meters the water out, it does not go dry. However as we found out the last time through, Lake Meade’s water level is dangerously low.
Above is Lake Mead 2013 The white on the rocks shows how dangerously low the water had become then. This picture taken from the road on the dam itself.
The above picture was taken from the dam in 2013. first you see the conglomeration of power towers supporting the poser lines coming up from the Hoover DAm power plant and in the distance the new GIANT bridge by passing the Dam and spanning the Colorado River gorge.
This is the Queen Mary. It was then a Hotel
Of course we had to drive across the Golden Gate Bridge.
And main street in Reno. Not as big as Las Vegas, but still well known for Gambling.
Today we moved. WE are now at Clerbrook golf and RV resort. WE have never been here, it is a very pretty place and BIG. WE are just North of Clermont, FL.
Thanks for following us on our first excursion from the East Coast, back in 1983! WOW, it started a dream to see all 50 states and we have since, done that.
Steady travel is not for everyone, but for some reason I cannot get enough of it, I am sure it is a character flaw, but what the heck, most folk have some Character flaw.
Now this is cute, I can see Paula chasing the cows in this!
