The Hoover Dam

We had a meeting in Las Vegas, NV (yes, there are some great churches there, much needed!).  On our way we decided to stop by the Hoover Dam.  This is my favorite part of all of our traveling is being able to see some great things in our country.  We did a quick stop on our way to Vegas, then on our way home we got out and walked around a bit.  There is a bridge now that crosses it, they built a pathway for people to walk across and see the Hoover Dam.  It's scarey!  I walked halfway, then gave my husabnd my camera and grabbed my son and practically ran back across!  I don't like heights!  Here are some photos from our day.







The bottom photos are from a museum we went to in Boulder City that explained how they made the dam.  It is fascinating!  The last photo is of a couch I found in the lobby.  I want it. 

By the way, the church in Las Vegas took us on for support.  The pastor has been burdened for Australia, and as a birthday present to him the church took us on for support.  It was a huge blessing.  God is good!

That's one of the great things about deputation and furloughs... all the neat places and things you get to see!

Awesome pictures!
