This is a lesson in history! One of our nation's landmarks is brought to life on a night-time tour of Hoover Dam!
Footnote: I have even written a novel with the generators of this goliath as a backdrop for the hydroelectric power plant in the story, all 726.4 feet and 3.5 million cubic tons in concrete of Hoover Dam played a part in my book.
As a research scientist & author, having written six books, I currently reside in New Mexico, Nevada and Utah with my husband, daughter and son. My degree(s) and career experience professionally are in environmental science, cytogenetic technology, environmental biology and wildlife biology. I obviously love to write, naturally, and travel. (And putting together the BLURB coffee table picture books in my spare time are also kind of fun.)
