Lake Mead National Recreation Area Photo Gallery

Photos of Lake Mead National Recreation Area include Lake Mead behind Boulder City, the Desert Princess paddlewheeler between the walls of Black Canyon with drought-exposed bath tub rings, a diver looking at the propeller of the B-29 that crashed into Lake Mead, marinas, Hoover Dam, and other photos of Lake Mead and Lake Mohave in Lake Mead NRA.  The exposed bath tub rings illustrate the depth of the ongoing drought - Lake Mead was at an historic low on July 1, 2016, 148 feet (45 meters) below full pool.
