Last Spring, on a road trip to visit Myra in Santa Fe, I was jaw-droppingly surprised to see for the first time the colossal construction of a bridge hovering high over Hoover Dam and spanning the Colorado River. It is immense, and breathtaking but my feeble attempt to capture its scale just couldn’t be managed from a moving vehicle… I’ve heard the radio announcements this week talking up its ceremonial opening scheduled for next week. I cannot imagine what the experience for the first travelers to cross it will be like, thrilling no doubt.
Fortunately, Jamey Stillings has done an amazing documentation and created a site to display his work. Go check out The Bridge at Hoover Dam
