Wordless Wednesday (almost) - Looking down at Hoover Dam from 30,000 feet

By
Real Estate Agent with Chris Alston (Keller Williams Realty, Silicon Valley, California) 01338415

I do a lot of traveling when I teach.  East to West, North to South...  And have become familiar with what I am flying over, and try to look, and snap pictures of various things you fly over.  I was headed back from Texas, and I chose to sit on the right side of the plane to see the Grand Canyon, Vegas, the NASCAR track and of course, Hoover Dam. 

I have been to Hoover dam, and it was amazing...  But this time it looked so small... hmmmmmm...  :)

Hoover Dam is on the bottom right side of this picture, and this picture was taken before the completion of the highway bridge that bypasses the drive-over part.

Hoover Dam

I hope everyone is having a great week!

:)

Chris -

Last time over Hoover dam I was pulling a trailer in a Moving truck ... the switch back was so sharp I swear I could see my own taillights ....  This looks like a much calmer view!

Hi Chris,

Great photo!  My kids always take over the window seats anymore but I do love the views from a plane.

I lost all of my 35mm film photos in a house fire many years ago so I don’t have cool pictures like that anymore since I don’t do a lot of traveling anymore. Anyone in another state need a home inspector ? Have tools, will travel, for money, of course. J
