Lake Mead in Mid Oct?

Fri, Oct 14, 2016

Carol and I wrapped up 7 parks in 14 days in Utah and drove down to the Lake Mead NRA this afternoon.  It seemed like a good idea earlier this week when I booked the site.  Especially since the route is an easy three day drive to the Grand Canyon and we have three days to kill.  So off we went.

And then the temperature started to rise.  From the 60’s to the 70’s, then 80’s and then the 90’s.  The thermometer in my car was showing 94F when we pulled in.  Carol to me: “What were you thinking?  Didn’t you check the weather forecast?”  Oopsie.

Oh well, it’s a dry heat, right?

And I’ll get a nice swim in tomorrow if I can make my way down to the water.  With the low water level, it’ll be a heck of a walk just to get there.  And geeze, check out that bathtub ring.  Come on Winter, give us some snow & rain!
