The Beautiful Davis Dam

Davis Dam is located well south of Las Vegas near Bullhead City, Arizona, and Laughlin, Nevada on the Colorado River. I have included links for these locations, but seeing the dam in person is always better of course, as is visiting Hoover Dam. Hoover Dam is open on a limited basis for visitors, but I can wait.

This is at Summerlin Parkway and Durango Road. On the way home from the pharmacy, I spotted this odd-looking device and grabbed a photo of it.

Two possibilities: A small cell phone repeater, to fill in areas where the larger towers can not get a solid signal into, or, It is a detector that listens for gunfire. Not kidding.

Melting and Lifting

The white stuff that fell overnight has all melted from my place now, here’s a photo looking west down my street. Pretty! Those clouds are very slowly lifting up, yet another low-pressure system will move into the valley this week. Winters…
