    wow, what a shot!
    (no homes? such a big desert, do you know why?)

  • Thank you, Tereza! Because this is a National Recreation Area there is no development other then to support the use of the area…. beaches, boat launches, marinas, etc. Lake Mead is the result of the construction of the Hoover Dam. Three of America’s four desert ecosystems.. the Mojave, the Great Basin, and the Sonoran deserts… meet in Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

    I mean is there a project for this area?

  • Beyond the western boundary of the Lake Mead NRA you will find Las Vegas, Henderson and Boulder City Nevarda,,, The east, Arizona, is the Grand Canyon National Park and Hualapai Indian Reservation… and somewhere in this vast emptiness is Area 51 :>))
