9/2-9/4 Lake Meade, Nevada

One of Pauls’ “bucket lists” was to go to the Hoover Dam.

The west is in a critical drought situation. The Hoover Dam which provides water and electricity for Arizona, California and Nevada is heading towards rationing of these resources. The desert really needs some rain.

We stayed at Lake Meade RV park, it wasn’t one of my favorites but just a place to park to see the area. Honestly, it was just too hot to sit outside and enjoy the view of the lake.

However, we did walk this long pier to Harbor Lights Cafe for breakfast, then we were on our way to the Hoover Dam.

The Hoover Dam is a marvel for sure, half in Arizonia and half in Nevada.

The lower left hand picture shows what the water level was about 1937 since then it’s dropped about 150 ft.

It was an interesting little stop, they were not allowing tours of the lower observation deck and generator area but we walked across the top of the dam and then we drove across the bridge.

It was almost 100 degrees, we decided to call it a day.
