    Flat then a drop

    by SLLiew Written Nov 7, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Was fascinated by this view of this section of Grand Canyon where you could see the flat plateau and then suddenly a drop down the canyon.

    It would be disastrous if a horse coach had travelled in the dark of the moonless and starless night and then went over the edge.

    Just a thought.

    Mount Humphreys

    Mount Humphreys from Rte. 180

    Favorite thing: We passed through the Flagstaff area just south of the Grand Canyon on both our north and southbound drives. This is a very beautiful area of Arizona and we were quite impressed with both the forested mountain landscape and the town itself. Flagstaff is nestled in the San Francisco Mountains with its highest peak, the 12,750 foot Mt. Humphreys shown here with some Ponderosa Pines. This area is part of the Coconino National Forest and, while travelling through it, we glimpsed what appeared to be a coyote amongst the trees.

    LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATION AREA

    Favorite thing: LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATION AREA (2337 sq miles): Hoover Dam was built between 1931 & 1936 thereby backed up the Colorado River, flooding the canyons & producing Lake Mead. The purpose of the dam is to control flooding, provide irrigation & hydroelectricity & water supply to the population of Southern California.

    Lake Mead is one of the world's largest artificial lakes (110 miles long).

    Unusual formation

    Fondest memory: What this is called I've got no idea :-((
    But, it's too unique to miss.
    I suppose it's part of the landscape around the Lake Mead area.

    See the HOOVER DAM

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: See the HOOVER DAM: 726 feet high! If not from the ground, at the very least from the air!

    Hoover Dam is the tallest dam in the world.
