This is a pictorial documentary of my business trip to Las Vegas, Nevada in 2002. I took a few extra days and spent some time around Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. My California trip, on another page, has more pictures of the casinos of Las Vegas. I did not see any of them on this trip.

Here is me afront Lake Mead. Some other shots of Lake Mead.
Entering the Hoover Dam area is a shrine to the builders of the dam.
