Today we saw the Hoover Dam from the Lake Mead side. We took a cruise aboard the Desert Princess which took us up the Black Canyon to the dam. Very scenic with the contrast between the stark rocks and the bright blue water. We were surprised at how much lower the water was than the last time we visited the dam. Any sight-seeing really needs to be done early in the day due to the excessive heat so the rest of the day was spent lazing around. Bob tried the casinos again but still didn't have any luck. He decided that the nickel slots at least give you more play time before you lose your money! Tomorrow is another stay around town day. Friday will be Valley of Fire.
