Hoover Dam

Two sacred statues dedicated to Zeus

The Hoover Dam is Annabeth’s all-time favourite structure. Yes, a dam. Over two hundred metres tall, built in the 1930s and holds five million cubic acres of water. There are two Oscar-like statues with wings, called the Guardians. They are dedicated to Zeus. The dam is normally a safe place, but when I was there I had a run-in with a bunch of nasty skelton warriors. You can recognise them from their grey camouflage outfits that flicker over their skeletal bodies.
