We have some of the biggest\largest dams in the world (List Here). They are not necessarily a short trip away, but I'd like to visit one.
Looking down the Hoover Dam
When visiting Vegas, we decided to take a drive out of the city. That day ended at the Hoover Dam. Quite impressive. I was holding my camera pretty tight when taking this picture. Maybe I should start wearing the camera strap around the neck :D.
