Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and Las Vegas

Ibuprofen wasn’t enough to kick my headache this morning so after work instead of leaving right away I dove into bed for an 1.5 hour nap. Giving us a bit of a late start today. We saw Hoover Dam first. We pulled into the parking structure where they questioned us on weather we had any pets and of course we answered honestly that we did. We were informed that we couldn’t park in the cool parking structure with a pet but we could cross the dam and park in the sun (it wasn’t that hot but still it’s the concept) as long as one of us stayed with Myra. I was a little bit steamed, but it worked out ok because I had been there before and was really tired so I just stayed in the car and people watched, rested, and enjoyed the view. While Chad and the kids got a closer look.

Lake Mead is the lake that was created when the Colorado River was dammed up at the Hoover Dam. It was a beautiful rest

The visitor center was very kid friendly, we had a lot of fun doing the Jr. Ranger program. It has been a little while since we have done that.

We closed up the visitor center then headed to our hotel. Swimming and pizza to close out the night. It’s definitely time for bed.
