Lake Mead and Hoover Dam Posted on April 16, 2023 by Denise Herrick We took a family road trip for spring break 2023. First stop, Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. What a stunning view! View from Owl Canyon Trailhead, overlooking Las Vegas Bay in Nevada. The iconic view of the Lake Mead’s “bathtub ring” with Arizona on the right and Nevada on the left. Hoover Dam’s four intake towers with the Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial bridge in the background.
