America recreates ,thank you Lake Havasu and modern engineering

we all have fun when engineers build and divert dams! Lake Havasu means blue green waters in native American language and so inviting for desert dwellers. Here we come.Passed by this going home while camping further north.Thanks to the visionary who brought the London bridge to the dry Arizona that was sinking in the Thames river in London then reconstructed the bridge, filled in water and we have a playground.Their loss is our gain.It is not a playground for the Europeans anymore but now for the Americans to enjoy. How history changes since 1971
