Hoover Dam-Arizona Side

This picture was taken from the Arizona side of the Dam. Photographers get the best view of the whole complex from this vantage point. Its sad, though. Arizona seems to have not received the same funds to develop a park or visitor's center for their side of the complex. Nevada, on the other hand, has a museum, visitor's center with gift shop, cafe and a huge multi-story parking deck. The Arizona side had a camper trailer sitting on a dirt parking lot selling bottled water, and Porta-potties for bathrooms. Gee, how much would it cost the state of Arizona to invest in a few picnic tables and some landscaping. They might even sell a few more bottles of water to the tourists. They definitely have the best panoramic view of the dam.
