HOOVER DAM CONTAINS ENOUGH CONCRETE TO STRETCH ACROSS THE
Hoover Dam created America’s largest reservoir covering about
248 square miles. It’s a striking, sparkling oasis in
the middle of the desert and the Las Vegas Strip is not far just north of the
lake off in the distance. The place is known as a boater’s paradise and out in
the middle of the lake lies a B-29 Superfortress bomber from World War II.
