Over Lake Mead

Nearing Las Vegas and home the other day I snapped these with the iPhone. Next time I need to get the Nikon out of the suitcase for the flight. Looking closely, you can see the ‘bathtub ring’ left on the canyon walls as the lake level has fallen for many years now. Lake Mead hasn’t been at full pond since the 1980s, it’s very sad!

Note – this post was uploaded in 2019 so I’m drawing from the blog’s archive here.

    • Thanks, Derrick. Seen from above the desert floor makes some great patterns although it’s basically treeless. We will hit 106F today…
