Wait until Covid is Over

The trip started with a random stop at the welcome to Las Vegas sign, which my seatmate on the bus and I weren't expecting and which I didn't want to see. After that we headed out to the dam, which was majestic. The tour gave an hour and a half at the dam, but since the visitor center was closed got Covid you could only see the outside stuff on the top of the dam. The driver did a good job of narrating. It's a good tour, but it might be better once everything is open again.
