Hoover Dam Lodge standing among the volcanic rock.
We stayed at the Hoover Dam Lodge, which is 17 stories with a casino, Wednesday night. First thing Thursday morning, I went out for a walk and climbed down to a trail that's an old railroad bed. As I hiked toward Hoover Dam, with Lake Mead on my left, I came across a couple of tunnels. I don't know what it is about old railroad tunnels, but they are really fun. Since I didn't have a lot of time, I quickly walked through the tunnels, took photos from inside and out, and walked back to the hotel.
