Walk Through Hoover Dam

Pretty sad how much the water level has dropped here at the Hoover Dam.

Walk Through Hoover Dam

It is free to just walk over the dam. And most of the parking lots are free. Admission is only charged for the guided tour, and only the two lots closest to the dam charge money. Everything else is free.
