Yesterday we drove to Hoover Dam and dropped Dick and Bev off so they could take the tour. We went on across the dam and found a dirt road to follow for a few miles. It was another narrow, rocky road, the kind Ernie loves, and we headed off.
At first it was just the same color of desert tan that is all over around here, and I wasn't too impressed. It gets pretty boring after awhile.
But when we came to the above scene I changed my mind. It was beautiful, in a brown sort of way! There were a few spots of orange running through the hills, and several shades of brown and tan. We didn't go any further, but the sign said the road continued on to Lake Mead, the lake created by the dam.
