Las Vegas, Carson City, Hoover Dam, Boulder City, Ely, all amazing places with such a massive variation from the bustling Las Vegas city centre to the serene beauty of the Valley of Fire.

Please click on the heading or associated image to be taken to the dedicated page covering the City or Tourist attraction.....

LAS VEGAS:

An amazing city located in the Nevada Desert. I'm not much of a gambler but I love the place. Vibrant with so many attractions.

The 'clickable' image depicts the Golden Lion that dominates the front of the MGM Building on the Las Vegas Strip.

 

THE VALLEY OF FIRE STATE PARK:

The Valley of Fire State Park is Nevada's oldest state park, dedicated in 1935.

Deriving it's name from the red sandstone formations that were formed from shifting sand dunes during the age of the dinosaur, some 150 million years ago, the Valley of Fire offers a landscape of breathtaking colour and expanse.

The 'clickable' image depicts the colour of the rock formations.

 

THE HOOVER DAM:

Flooding, drought and the need for Electricity drove the need to dam the Colorado River. Work on the dam commenced in 1931 and the last concrete was poured in 1935. Work continued for many years and in 1961 the final seventeenth Generator came on line.

The 'clickable' image depicts the Hoover Dam.

 

LAKE MEAD:

Created as a direct result of the Hoover Dam construction, Lake Mead includes massive water storage, a marina, pleasure craft facilities, water skiing, jetski and a marvellous Paddle Steamer tourist facility.

The 'clickable' image depicts the Desert Princess Paddle Steamer water wheel with the Hoover Dam in the background.

 

ELY, WENDOVER & ENVIRONS:

Ely, West Wendover, the Pony Express Memorial, all wonderful places to visit.

The 'clickable' image depicts 'Wendover Will', the huge illuminated Cowboy that dominates the main street of West Wendover.

I LOVE NEW TECHNOLOGY, TABLETS, LAPTOPS, DIGITAL CAMERAS, MOBILE PHONES/WIRELESS BROADBAND, GPS, ETC.  ALL SO COOL AND 'PORTABLE'......
