Trip to Nebraska #1

Friday, 17 Jun 2011:  Began our trip Wednesday morning from Seal Beach, CA.  Our first stop was at the Hoover Dam.  We took a tour of the inside of the dam and saw some of the details of how it works.  Afterwards we found some cozy cabins in Meadview, AZ where we spent the night.  Today we went to the Grand Canyon and took a walk on the glass platform that extends 70 feet over the edge of the canyon at Eagle Point.  On the way to our next stop we visited an area where there were imprints of dinosaur tracks in the ground.  Pretty cool!  We then stopped at Tuba City where we will spend the night.  When we got there the car was overheating and we thought something was wrong with the radiator or water pump.  It wasn’t until the next day when we were able to get the car towed to a repair shop to check it out.  We were very relieved to find out that it was nothing more than a bad fuse.  We got a later start today than we had hoped, but made a stop at Four Corners in Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona all at once.  We continued from there to our final stop for the day in Durango, Colorado.  Below are some pictures of our Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon adventures:
