Hoover Dam, Arizona/New Mexico Borderby celestriapix
Shot of the dam. The photographer’s comments are too true!

Hoover Dam intake towers on the Arizona side. There’s a matched set on  the Nevada side. I have to say that I think if the dam were to be built  today it wouldn’t be nearly as attractive. There are a lot of art deco  details both on the outside and in the tunnels inside the dam itself.  It’s an amazing structure. Being rather afraid of heights I didn’t take  any photos from over the railing looking down - LOL!
