Lake Mead, Nevada

Lake Mead is America’s largest reservoir, created by the Hoover Dam’s construction. The area we visited here is in the Overton arm, and it’s just a small, tiny portion of the entire thing, which has over 750 miles of coastline!

Beautiful lake front property! The view was so beautiful, I wanted to stay forever.

With mostly soft sands as terrain, as it once was under water, this area has lots to offer. There is wildlife such as wild burros, kit fixes and coyotes, and a lot of land to explore, including seeming trails down and around the shoreline and past shorelines. At its deepest point in history, Lake Mead was once 1225 feet. Since 1983, it has dropped to 1013 feet.

We were still awake when the trail cam took this picture. No wonder this kit fox seems to be in a hurry!

This little lizard didn’t visit long, but stayed just long enough to get a quick pic!

We stayed here for nearly a week, then had to leave in search of water and to carry on with our journey. It was a beautiful place to stay and I definitely will be returning, especially in hopes to see wild burros up close!

Apparently the military does practice flights here
