I really like these photos, there are many more to come from my Hoover Dam photos so please stop by again. Please click a photo for a better view. Photos via Nikon D3300 and Nikkor 70-300mm lens. As you can see by the white “bathtub ring”, Lake Mead is terribly low and this year’s Monsoon season brought very little rain as compared to the previous two years. The damned southwest drought continues. It was 1983 when the lake was last at it’s full level.
