Nevada is the most interesting state I know.  I enjoy the heat and like that the state bird is the Mountain Bluebird.  My most favorite thing about Nevada is the Hoover Dam.  It has made a huge difference in the lives of many people.

The Hoover Dam is 726 feet tall and 660 feet wide.  It traps water from the Colorado River and forms Lake Mead.  The most special things about the Hoover Dam are that it controls flooding and provides electricity and drinking water to three states!

The government made a great decision to build Hoover Dam in Nevada. Nevadans need water and electricity and we are happy to share it with the states that border us.  I am thankful that the government tries to make right choices about Nevada because we want to keep it a fantastic state!
