Execellent flight over both attractions. A must when visiting Las Vegas. The scale of the Grand Canyon is hard to believe. The colours of the rocks. The Hoover Dam was a major engineering project.

The trip down under the dam to the power plant was very interesting. The views from the dam and from the bridge overlooking the dam were fantastic. It is worth the time to stop and have a look.

I am still in awe of the human effort that went into the construction of the dam and its surrounding structures!
