We decided to get up early at the Canyon to see the sunrise. The cliffs and formations do look different in the early light. While we were watching the sunrise, a herd of Mule Deer came walking across the parking lot and onto the Hotel lawn.
left the Canyon after breakfast and drove another section of Route

New Mexico. We got to Hoover Dam about 1:ish. Lots of
security, but none of it seemed very effective. No trucks or R.V.'s
are allowed to cross the Dam and we went thru a sort of security check to
get inside the Dam. The tours are greatly abbreviated from the past,
but still pretty interesting. We went down below to see the
