New hazards as Lake Mead water level drops

Despite the odd article in the COM newsletter claiming that “launching is good”, I’ve seen trucks barely get their boats out of the water in May when the water level was still higher::

And it’s not getting easier — I highly recommend 4 wheel drive!  And of course bring a book to read or something to do during the holiday rush as only ONE lane is open and I’ve heard of long waits during Memorial Day weekend.

I’ll stick to the kayak and I enjoy the peace and quiet at the lake — I stay away during holiday weekends.
