Hope everyone had a great and joyous Easter.
We had made the move to Boulder City, Nevada staying at Lake Mead National Recreation Area. We are in the RV park which is run by concessionaires. The park service does run a campground which did have nice spacious sites but they do not have electric and do not take reservations. So knowing we were needing a site over Easter we wanted to make sure we had one reserved.
We began checking the area out by heading down to check out the beach, well what there is of beach. The prolonged drought here has really put Lake Mead at critically low levels. How low you ask? How does 147 feet low sound? Pretty hard to maintain a nice beach with the water constantly receding.
We got in a couple nice drives the first along the North Shore Drive on the opposite lake shore. Along the way we stopped at many of the available pullouts admiring the ever changing scenery. We ended our drive as clouds came in and started to dull the views.

Another day we grabbed Rick and Rita to ride along to Valley Of Fire State Park. Valley of Fire lies at the north end of North Shore Drive. It is an amazing place of fire red colored rock. We again had a great time driving and stopping for short walks through the majestic scenery.
