Our oldest son lives in Arizona and we travel there a couple times a year from Northern Nevada. We used to have to travel over the Hoover Dam, As did everyone who went that way. Most times it was slow going, one lane and security checks over Hoover Dam. But then they built a new overpass, as you can see here in this photo. (in the process of building it four years ago)
I thought it was so high I would be scared to DEATH when we crossed it.
The truth is---it IS very high---frigging frackin' (my new words to mean extra very) high!
But when we took the new road, you are over it before you know it AND you can't see down, so you can't be afraid.
It's just like driving down the highway.
It was very anti-climatic for me. I was ready to be blown away with height fright.
The Handyman said, "we're over it"
I said, "That was it?"
The last photo is of the Handyman looking down at the Colorado River from Hoover Dam, with the construction of the new road in the background.
We are kind of obsessed with rivers, he and I.
