The Dam is a Huge Tourist attraction in itself and they are creating it in a way that it looks like it belongs there and is not some crass eyesore. We were really impressed.
While I was in the gift shop buying a magnet the guy who owns it is a Queenland boy and he slipped quickly in to his Aussie accent while talking to me.
We then headed through Boulder, the only Nevada City that has a No Gambling Law and on to Vegas......the KOA we were planning to stay at was no longer there.. so we were right in the middle of The Strip and in our big rig looking for an RV Park...Thank God for Percy...that's the name of our GPS, he found us a very nice place close by called the Oasis RV Resort.
We both agreed that if there was one state that we would NOT want to live in over here it would be Nevada... And seeing nothing but desert and desert mountains for hours on end gets very boring.
We then drove up over the mountains to get to Lake Tahoe and the road way is cut into the side of the mountain and the drop over the side would not be one you would want to take.
We did find a place to stop halfway up to let the cars behind us pass, and see a beautiful river that was heading down.
