Hoover Dam, 2006

I’ve been to Hoover Dam twice. The first time was seeing it on a guided tour in the mid 1990’s. The second was in 2006. I was shocked by how low the water line was. It’s noticeable in the picture above by the white “bathtub ring”. That year Lake Mead was the lowest point since the 1960’s. It’s levels have continued to drop since. It could be below its threshold of 1,075 ft. by 2020.
