Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam, Las Vegas

Hoover Dam, here we come! *queue James Bond theme tune*
We had some amazing scenery to take in on the drive from Las Vegas – it was a short drive (about 45 minutes) but super hot outside!

First stop, the ‘monuments’? I’m not too sure what these are called, without guessing.. but they say that if you rub the statues feet, it’s good luck! So away I went, rubrubrub!IMG_4204
The views were incredible of the Hoover Dam. I literally felt like I was in a James Bond film, there and then! And I did not stop humming the theme tune either, which probably irritated every single tourist there.IMG_4212 IMG_4236
I don’t have much too say really as the photos speak for themselves – but the Hoover Dam is MASSIVE.IMG_4239 IMG_4245 IMG_4251
Where Hoover Dam is situated, it turns out that it is sat on the border of two time zones. Nevada Time and Arizona Time!IMG_4264
Next, we went down into the Pump Stations of the Hoover Dam which were really interesting and you could hear the hundreds and hundreds of litres of water flushing through the pipes!IMG_4280 IMG_4282 IMG_4283

Do you recognise this from the Goldeneye opening? What other films do you remember this from?
