Nancy still hasn't gotten a hair cut and it's driving her nuts. The truck needs an oil change--last one was in Albuquerque and Nancy wants to get it before driving to Aunt Dorothy's. She hates to go to one of the quickie joints, but if there's a Dodge dealer, it means hours of waiting, and she wants to get an early start on the drive north.
Susie took all the pictures today, except for the flower and the goats, oh, and the helicopter. The goats were a surprise. Nancy almost missed them. It's amazing how they can stand on a cliff that goes almost straight up and down.
The pictures may be a little out of order, but here they are. This bridge is in progress--we assume to avoid the traffic on the dam which is awful.
In this picture, you can see the traffic. It was backed up for miles.
Rugged cliffs surround the dam.
The structure of the dam, and the size is amazing.
This was actually the color of the water from this angle.
I don't think I'd want to be in a boat that was as close to the dam as these boats.
We saw a lot of these desert flowers on the road to the skywalk. Susie said they are petunias imported from Georgia.
Nancy took a picture of this helicopter. There were so many of them ferrying people over the canyon--seemed like they got about 20 minutes for $125. per person.
And, the surprise for the day was when Nancy spotted the mountain goats!
You can see what I mean about Nancy's hair! She doesn't get tan, she gets orange. Don't tell her I said that.
