These photos were taken on Lake Mead Boulevard on the far east side of Las Vegas Valley. The road at this point is higher than the Stratosphere Tower a good bit. Turn around and head east, you’ll be heading into the Lake Mead National Recreation Area, a huge area that includes Lake Mead of course. On the west end of Lake Mead Boulevard, the road dead-ends at the foothills. Today’s forecast is for 100F and sunshine. Happy Monday!
