    Talking Kelly's Hoover Dam Tour and Valley of Fire Trip report

    This is the first time I ahve done a trip report for the main Mice Chat area. I have done a couple in the private clubs. I hope you like it and are not

    A few weeks ago, hubby took a week off of work and we decided to play the tourist here in Vegas. But where to go. We decided the DAM Tour at Houver dam 1 of those days, and another day The valley of Fire.

    Now at the Dam there are 2 tours you can take one is $11 while the other is $30. We wanted the more extensive tour but coundt take that one as children have to be over 8 years old. So we went on the Mini Dam tour.

    looking at the turbines



    here is another picture of the soon to be NEW BRIDGE



    basically on the $11 tour you go underground for maybe 20 minutes, the rest is a self guided tour thru a museum which was really interesting
