The Hoover Dam

I'm getting around to hiking vacation pictures, I promise! Lots of school work has been keeping me distracted. I can't wait til this big paper is turned in! Here are color pictures from around the Hoover Dam. All of the funny towers reminded me so much of the graphics in Riven - the computer game sequel to Myst. Don't know what computer game I'm talking about? It's ok. It just means you are not a huge nerd like me :)

They have a clock on each side of the dam. One telling Nevada time, and one telling Arizona time. Usually, the clocks would be an hour off since the time zones change between the two states, but since Arizona doesn't recognize daylights savings time, the clocks showed the same time. Isn't that odd of Arizona? Well there is your trivia for the day!
