As part of Becky’s April Bright Square Photo Challenge over at The Life of B, I’ve opened the archives to January 2020 to share our 19 day trip to USA. Join me on a pictorial travelogue of the best and brightest of our pre-pandemic adventures in California and Nevada! The rules of the challenge are simple: most photos must be square and fit the theme word bright. Look for #brightsquare.
On the border between Nevada and Arizona we saw two extraordinary structures. Hoover Dam, on the Colorado River, was completed in 1936 and is the tallest of its kind in the United States. The Mike O’Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge, which connects the two states, is the world’s highest concrete arch bridge.
From the dam we had an amazing view of the bridge and later, when we walked across the bridge, we could see the hydroelectric plant, the dam wall and Lake Mead.
