My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Thursday and we are going to tour the Hoover Dam

Our big thing today is going to the Hoover Dam for a tour and of course pictures. Over the years I have come to Las Vegas many times and have gone and looked at the Hoover Dam and always wanted to take the tour, well this year we are going to do it. Julie, Cassandra and I are going to meet Melissa and her wife at the Hoover Dam at 9am so that means getting up early again. A fun vacation but late nights and early mornings. We were ready and in the car by 8am and on our way, takes about 40 minutes to get there.

As we were getting close Cassandra saw a sign so of course we had to stop and get pictures, have to wonder what the cars going by thought. We each took several pictures here and I really liked the way this one turned out, I actually have a cute pose. We were only about 10 minutes from the Dam here.

We got to the Hoover Dam and parked, Melissa and her wife arrived as we were getting out of the car so perfect timing. We had to wait a little as they don’t open till 9 so we looked around a little from the outside. It was also a little windy. I really think the wind is the thing I hate most about being female as it messes up my hair.

We went inside the visitor center and had to go through a security check and medal detector. Another new experience for Susan but it is just like it is at the airport so good practice for when we take our cruise this fall. We got tickets for the 10:15 tour so we had a little time to watch a short movie about the building of the Dam and go through their exhibits. Now they were really busy and so many people but I really didn’t think about how I was dressed, as a matter of fact we were all just being ourselves and not thinking about anything else, how wonderful is that. None of us even noticed if people were watching us. We actually did two tours as there is the powerhouse tour and the Dam tour, each takes about 30 minutes. Now the tour is informative and I would say if you get the chance to go you should. That being said once you have gone on it you don’t need to go again as you really don’t see anything from inside. This is a selfie of me inside the tunnel in the Dam but they do give you some history and information that is kind of fun. I think the best pictures were outside in the wind of course.

You really do get some great views from the Dam so by al means you need to go and walk the top of the Dam and look at everything. We were her a few hours as it was almost noon when we left. Now they built a new Bridge about 10 years ago to get traffic off the top of the Dam and you can walk out on the bridge and look down on the Dam, wonderful views. It is hard to find this but I have been here a couple times as my male self so I knew where it was. I told Cassandra where to turn and she was convinced it was just a parking lot which really is what it looks like. We did park and climbed the hill and walked out on the bridge and the view was spectacular. Of course, we got some wonderful pictures. This is Susan with the wind-blown look. There were lots of people here also doing the same thing we were, getting pictures and no one seemed to give us a second look.

We didn’t spend a lot of time here but the view was wonderful and worth the stop. We left here about 12:30 and we got back to our hotel right about 1 pm and had to rush to get ready as we are doing top golf at 2 and it will take aboutv30 minutes to get there but that will be the next blog. There are a few more pictures below.

Thanks for reading and be sure to see what is knew with Susan on her most recent blog and also what I did at Diva Las Vegas 2018.

Yes, it has been a great week but is coming to an end way to fast as I knew it would. I have had my beautiful long red nails now for a full week and now I am already starting to think about Tuesday when I will have to have the shortened and the red removed, it will be so sad.

  1. Love your outfit Susan. I’m going to have to find a similar dress. The first picture in front of the sign is really cute. Sounds like you’re having a great time.
    Keep safe Charlene 💋💋

  4. […] as I don’t normally go places like this as Susan. Actually, I think last year when we did the Hoover Dam tour was the first time, I did what I would call a touristy thing as Susan. That was also a lot of fun. […]
