Hoover Dam and Lake Mead Tour

Scott and I ventured away from the neon strip and took a tour out to the Hoover Dam. We ended up with a personal tour guide, Dean, from Dean's Outdoor Adventures. If you ever want a great tour experience, I highly recommend Dean - his company specializes in adventure-oriented excursions like white water rafting and as a result, the tour groups are smaller (10 people or less). This allows for a very personalized tour experience.

Our trip to the Hoover Dam included a visit to Lake Mead, Boulder City, the new O'Callaghan-Tillman bridge and the Hoover Dam power plant.

It is amazing to see how low the water level is in the lake and the waterways feeding the dam. You can see the distinct change in color from dark to light - that represents the highest level of the lake in 1983.

And our tour guide, Dean, who was so knowledgeable and accommodating.

Next time we go out to Vegas, we're going to hire Dean to take us to the Valley of Fire.
