It seems that every time we fly into Las Vegas, we find something new to see or do in Lake Mead National Recreation Area. Since 2011, we have toured the inside of Hoover Dam and walked on the top. We have driven the Scenic Drive to the North on the West side of Lake Mead, taken a scenic cruise on Lake Mead above the Dam, and hiked the Historic Railroad Trail. Most recently, we took a history boat tour at the mouth of Black Canyon on the Colorado River just below the Dam and ventured South on Highway 95 to Cottonwood Cove on Lake Mohave.
Visiting Lake Mead is always an adventure with new things to see and discover, even if you don't spend the whole day on the water.
We enjoyed each of the parts of Lake Mead Recreation Area that we have seen. We have experienced the "dry" heat and wind of the area and learned lessons while hiking there. We are excited to see more of this public land the next time we head out West. Please take a moment to see our adventure int he video below. Until next time, keep on trekking!
Kay and Matt enjoy hiking all over the USA. We have a YouTube Channel to video our adventures, this blog, and we are working on building an app to allow others to go on adventures too.
