Beautiful Boulder City

I forget sometimes how fortunate we are to live in such a beautiful place as Boulder City Nevada.  Today I was out in the yard sitting on my bench with my face in the sun  finishing my book.  There aren't a lot of places you can do that on the last day of January.  I realize this is a mild Winter but it's this way most years. 

Boulder City is about 30 miles South East of Las Vegas and a world away.  It is a small, conservative town with a few thousand people and 11 parks.  We have more parks in our little town than most big cities.  We are also only a few minutes from Hoover Dam.  The dam is the reason our town is here and it is truly a wondrous thing to see.  The newest place to take your family and visitors to see is the new bypass bridge that traverses Black Canyon just about a quarter mile South of the dam.  It is one of the highest bridges over water in world and the view is killer.  Check out the photos we took on one of our visits to the bridge.
