Photo of the Week #24, selected in October, 2019

Lake Mead is a large reservoir created by Hoover Dam at the Nevada/Arizona border, not far from Las Vegas. The current continuous drought has dropped the lake’s water level by over 160′ compared to its most recent high mark measured in 1990. This has caused the lake shore to draw back several hundred feet in places, exposing a myriad of items long thought lost. This boat was one of the more interesting of my finds there. I often wonder what caused this pleasure vessel to sink and how long ago that was.
