A positive ramification of Covid restrictions, is the opportunity to take time and explore one’s local flora and fauna. We set out to hike a trail that is part of the Hoover Dam railroad line, built in 1931 to provide a means of getting concrete and supplies needed for construction of the dam.
The trail follows on the path of the original rail line, but the rails are no longer there. It provides gorgeous vistas looking down on Lake Mead and of the rock formations as you pass through five of the original rail tunnels through the rock.
This is one of my favorite images, as the colors reminded me of Monet’s Water Lilies painting.
