Field Trip: Hoover Dam

Hoover Dam, once known as one of the 7 wonders of the world,  was a government sponsored project that was completed 2 years AHEAD of schedule, came in UNDER budget and paid for itself and then some!  Can you imagine the likelihood of that happening again?

If you look behind us you can see where the waterline used to be on the mountains (the white border).  Truthfully, the children weren’t that impressed with our Hoover Dam visit,  but they were happy to know that they’ve visited a National Landmark and could cross it of their lifetime bucket list!
