Okay - I was really impressed until I saw Hoover dam later in the trip. I was amazed that that much concrete could be poured to create a dam to make such a deep lake. Yea, we don't have things like this in Kansas!

The question is not really clear but you cannot drive on the dam itself. There is a bridge across the Colorado River just below the dam. It has a pedestrian walkway as well as lanes for cars/trucks. If you take the Dam... More
