Boulder City & Environs

Following along with the previous post, here are twenty very random photos from my quickie trip today. I originally intended to go back to Hoover Dam but just didn’t feel like it once in the area. I’ve been there how many times. I expect it still looks the same!

These photos are via the Nikon D3300 and the 70-300mm lens. I seem to use the Prime lens and the 70-300 lens most of the time, the kit lens is OK but it’s not as fast to focus as the Prime lens is. I like a big zoom, but it obviously doesn’t work so well for close-in photos. Twenty photos in this set! Visit the Boulder City website here. Information on Hoover Dam here.

Bike At Bootleg Canyon

I did some exploration around Boulder City today and found this cool large steel bike in the center of a roundabout on the way uphill to Bootleg Canyon. This place is a bikers mecca it seems with biking trails going every which way. The site offered a nice view southward toward Needles. I like Boulder City, plenty of open spaces, much less traffic.
