 Hoover Dam

Recently had the opportunity to do an overnight kayak trip down a stretch of the Colorado River known as Black Canyon, which begins directly below Hoover Dam. The dam had been on my photo list for a good number of years so the trip was an easy sell. We planned the first day as a travel day from San Diego and as an afternoon for photography at the dam.

Hoover Dam proved to be every bit as impressive as I had expected but it was also sobering standing there and realizing the number of people in Nevada, Arizona and California whose daily lives are directly tied to this structure built in the 1930’s. As a source of water and electric power, Hoover Dam is critical to the southwest. After almost eleven years of drought, Lake Mead reached an all time low water level in November of 2010. Due to the record west coast snowpack of late 2010 and early 2011, Lake Mead will receive a reprieve but its worth considering the demands our modern society is placing on this vital resource.
