The Mike O'Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge is a dramatic addition to the engineering masterpieces of the American Southwest. Formerly, all of the traffic between Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada traveled over a narrow road on top of the Hoover dam after winding down a narrow canyon. This dramatic bridge, over a 840 feet above the river, is also a huge tourist attraction and the second highest bridge in the United States. In addition, the bridge cuts almost 45 minutes off of the trip from Phoenix to Las Vegas. Many thousands of vehicles use the bridge every day. The view from the bridge is like flying in an airplane over the dam. Hoover Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River. The river is the boundary between Arizona and Nevada so the west side of the dam is in Nevada and the east side of the dam is in Arizona.

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
