Series on my trip to the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA) - NORTH AMERICA - Visiting LAS VEGAS, LAKE MEAD, HOOVER DAM, RED ROCK CANYON and the VALLEY OF FIRE (NEVADA), the GRAND CANYON - WEST AND SOUTH RIMS (ARIZONA), BRYCE CANYON, RED CANYON and ZION CANYON (UTAH), the DEATH VALLEY (CALIFORNIA) and finally CHICAGO (ILLINOIS) - From APRIL 05th to 24th, 2012 - # 116 !
Right after leaving BOULDER CITY, we started to fly over nearby Las Vegas surroundings and that included lots of desertland! I knew it, but it was so nice to see water again (on my landing, coming from Chicago, I had already seen those details)! Yes, amidst all that dry land, HOOVER DAM and LAKE MEAD! And we had a lot of time to see everything and to take many pictures!
Some others have been already posted by me on TE!
Take a look at some of them by clicking HERE , HERE and HERE , or visit my LAS VEGAS or GRAND CANYON galleries !
As I truly didn't know it could me the one and only time over there, I decided to take the most complete tour over the Grand Canyon nearby Las Vegas!
First a van from Las Vegas to Boulder City. Second a flight from Boulder City to the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM. After that, a helicopter flight over that NATURAL WONDER, going down to the COLORADO RIVER! There, a boat ride! Then, a flight back to the edges of the Canyon to visit some places, such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk with some lunch served over there! Finally, all the way back to Las Vegas by plane and van again! It was certainly totally worthwhile and very enjoyable!

Another aerial shot with the blue water and bright colour of the dam break the colour monotony of the land formation in almost muddy colour. Good clarity, contrast and framing, Well done, TFS.
