View stop

This stop is in lake mead state park and is more for photography and view. There are some short paths to make your way down to water but definitely more of a view stop. Beautiful lake mead and sunset. Weather in evening breezy and perfect. 5/19

We want to acknowledge and thank the past, present, and future generations of all Native Nations and Indigenous Peoples whose ancestral lands we travel, explore, and play on.
