Before this was created, you had to drive over Hoover Dam to get to Arizona from Las Vegas. It was a terrible traffic bottleneck but kind of a cool experience. It opened this winter, and before it did, they let pedestrians and bikes use it for a day. I was sad to not be there.

The canyon below it is full of slot canyons with wonderful hot springs, flowing into the placid (thanks to the dam) Colorado.
