Have You Ever Been on Lake Mead?

From the air, Lake Mead is the bluest lake I’ve ever seen. This view from the air shows how blue it is. When we visited the Hoover Dam, we took a paddleboat ride out on Lake Mead. I wrote about this before, I know. However, I’m trying to update some of my articles and I am revisiting some of the places that I have actually been to. I made a list of all the places that I have been to and it’s quite long. So, I’ve printed out that list from my documents and I decided to write more about each one of the places, because I’m going to publish my articles in a book as memoirs for my grandchildren. One of the interesting facts about Lake Mead is that it is, or was at the time that I was there, the second largest man-made lake in the world. With the drought that has been taking place in recent years, the water behind the dam has been greatly reduced, so that now the shoreline is much different than when I visited it several years ago. Have you ever been to Lake Mead?

@paigea Yes, the water line in many lakes in the U.S. and in other countries too, are changing. However the oceans seem to be eating up the shoreline in some places. Some houses built close to the beach on the Outer Banks of North Carolina have had to be abandoned or moved. Even lighthouses have been moved.

I have been there. Funny, I don't remember the blueness. Alot of the lakes out west are that beautiful blue though. I think one of the lakes I saw near Yellowstone was the bluest I have ever seen. For some reason, the lakes in the East just are no where near those vivid blues. My lake here, Lake Anna is quite blue,,,but not deep blue.
