Where I stayed
This was our first trip across the new bridge at the Hoover Dam. Don thinks it was a little disappointing as from the driver perspective it was just another bridge with high sides and that restricted high profile vehicles to the inner lane due to the possibility of strong winds. I did manage one shot of the dam - if you look close at the bottom of the picture of the Colorado Gorge!
Once across the bridge the air became much dustier as we approached Henderson. This is a usual occurrence as the wind off the Mohave blows much of the time in the valley along Hwy #95. And of course our first glimpse of Las Vegas is shrouded in a cloud of smog and dust!
Our destination tonight is the RV Park at Sam's town after settling in and having dinner we enjoyed the light show at the Casino.
