DAY 65: LAS VEGAS, NV TO PHOENIX, AZ

The sixty- fifth day began bright and early in Las Vegas, NV. A city that carries many names, like the Neon Capital, Sin City, or the City of Second Chances, has a deep history in American culture and folklore. Our ID.4 took on the city in great stride and we got to see what the famous city was like in the morning. Even though daylight was approaching, Las Vegas proudly displayed their colorful neon glow. Las Vegas also has many buildings that recreate places from around the US and the world. We got to take some nice shots of replicated buildings like the Statue of Liberty, and the Stratosphere which resembles the Seattle Space Needle. The Stratosphere the tallest building in Las Vegas and is actually 544 feet taller than the Space Needle in Seattle. The Stratosphere tower is actually the tallest freestanding observation tower in the United States. As we left Vegas we came across some massive solar panel fields. These solar powered plants actually supply power to surrounding states like California and are an essential source for electricity for this region in the US. We then made our way through to Utah after passing through Arizona. Here on I-15 we passed through the Virgin River Canyon, which offered us large scaling walls of rock and beautiful scenery. The next stop would be the famous Hoover Dam. The Hoover Dam is a concrete arch-gravity dam in the Black Canyon of the Colorado River, on the border between the states of Nevada and Arizona. It was constructed between 1931 and 1936 during the Great Depression. The steep walls were very impressive and this dam also supplies power to mutilple states like Nevada, Arizona, and California. An all too familiar sign appeared which was the famous route 66 Highway. We passed through one of it’s once bustling towns, Seligman, AZ. The town was very proud of its very important heritage and displayed a multitude of Route 66 signs.We then moved down the highway south and concluded our day in Phoenix, AZ.
