It should be noted that when you drive across the bridge, you have no idea what you're driving over. There is no view of Hoover Dam nor do you have any sense that you are so high above the river. It's only by driving down towards the dam that you can experience the glory of this engineering marvel. There is a walkway leading from a parking lot to the bridge. You can then walk across the structure and gaze down into the depths of Boulder Canyon. The walkway was done very nicely although I can see it becoming a bottleneck during the busy tourist season. I must say that I have not felt such anticipation to getting a view in a long time. My heart was literally pounding when I rounded the corner and stepped out onto the bridge. I was there early enough that I essentially had the bridge to myself at one point. I then drove across the dam to get a few pics of the bridge in all of its glory. OK. I'll shut up and let you enjoy the pics.

The only way to see what you're standing on. I absolutely loved the composition of this shot!
