Hoover Dam, Arizona - Nevada Border, USA
Nevada
Hoover Dam on the Colorado River forms the largest reservoir in United States in maximum water capacity, Lake Mead. Previously much of the traffic from Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada crossed the river on the road across the dam. But since the construction of the Mike O’Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge (Colorado River Bridge), traffic over the dam has been limited. The bridge is 900 feet over the river. In this panorama you can see the Bridge, the top of the Dam and down into the Black Canyon to the River below the Dam. The Dam is 726.4 feet from the rock foundation to the roadway. The towers over the dam rise another 40 feet. The Dam is 1,244 feet across the top and 660 feet thick at the base. The Dam featured prominently in the 2007 Transformers movie called simply “Transformers.” The Dam was constructed between 1931 and 1936.

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.
