2010 Travels - Hoover Dam and Lake Mead (USA)

The latest adventure took me the furthest west I've ever been... Las Vegas, Nevada.
Living on the edge....
Gorge near the south rim of the Grand Canyon

Lake Mead

America's largest reservoir is drying up. The combination of climate change and the increasing demand for water has resulted in a 100 foot drop since 2000, which represents a 53% loss in capacity.
