Uluru, also known as Ayers Rock, is located in the geographic center of Australia, in the southwestern part of the Northern Territory. It lies west of the Simpson Desert, about 208 miles southwest of Alice Springs and 288 miles by road. The huge sandstone rock is 1,142 feet high and can be seen from miles around. It measures almost 6 miles in circumference and is known for appearing to be different colours at different times of day. The rock has been sacred to Aborigines for centuries and the local name Uluru was officially recognized in 1993. The name Uluru has no meaning and was a local family name. A flat dirt path surrounds the rock and can be completed in approximately 4 hours. The climb to the top is one mile long, much of which is at a steep angle. There is an entry fee of $25 per adult to enter the park, children may enter for free.

Huge Hoover Dam in Las Vegas

Hoover Dam impounds Lake Mead, and is located near Boulder City, Nevada. Originally called Boulder Dam, this engineering marvel was re-named for Herbert Hoover, the 31st President of the United States. In 1935, Hoover Dam was the largest in the world and although long since surpassed it is still an amazing structure and a marvel of engineering – a huge, curving wall of plain concrete 660 feet thick at the base and 726 feet high set between the vertical walls of Black Canyon, accompanied by strangely-angled pylons, cables, power generating plants and other machinery. Its 17 generators produce 4 to 5 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity annually. That\’s enough power to supply a half million homes for one year, according to the Bureau of Reclamation, the agency responsible for maintaining and operating Hoover Dam. By the end of 1992, upgrading on the dam’s massive generators increased the original nameplate capacity from 1,345 megawatts to slightly more than 2,000 megawatts.
