AS ALWAYS, CLICKING ON THE PICTURES WILL ENLARGE THEM.
The stop at the visitors center. A view along the way, can you see the shuttle bus at the base of the mountain? After hiking up and down 3 miles of mountain paths, it was time for a snack. If you click on this picture and enlarge it you'll see the natural stone arch. I had to zoom in on 8x power to get this shot.
After getting back from our hiking, we rested for a short while then went for a two mile bike ride, check out the video below for a sample of our ride.

The Virgin river ran by close to the campground so we took a hike aqlong the river which also took use along some cliffs that we had to climb up.
Cactus flowers along the hills.

They are in the process of building a new bridge that will divert the traffic from the Dam. So thanks to 9/11, you will no longer be able to drive across the Dam.
After leaving the Dam, we drove about two miles to Lake Mead and parked right on the water so Joyce could get her toes wet.

You must watch where you walk because some of the old gold mines are still open. I found a couple of open shafts that were about 30 feet deep straight down. Looks like people are still digging for gold but all we saw was rocks, Joyce did find some with nice coloring in them.
