Mead National Recreation Area (NRA) located in Nevada,
offers a wealth of things to do and places to go year-round.
Its huge lakes cater to boaters, swimmers, sunbathers,
and fishermen while its desert rewards hikers, wildlife
photographers, and roadside sightseers. Three of America's
four desert ecosystems--the Mojave, the Great Basin, and
the Sonoran Deserts--meet in Lake Mead NRA. As a result,
this seemingly barren area contains a surprising variety
of plants and animals, some of which may be found nowhere
else in the world.
