The next day we woke up drove to see the Hoover Dam. We figured it was a must do since we were so close. We took a tour underneath and saw the huge water tunnels and generators used to create the energy used to keep Nevada and most of California running.

This is a generator and the wheel that spins inside of one. It was undergoing repair.

The water running through the dam has a very high content of calcium chloride which is what bleach the rock.  You can see a perfect white line on the rock slightly above water level. When the water was higher, it created the line. Kinda cool I thought
