The natural raw beauty of the desert and then water is just amazing. The Grand Canyon is just spectacular! You just cannot explain the vastness of it, it just has to be seen in person. A must for your bucket list for sure. Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam is also an amazing engineering success. Very clever in its design as a relatively small wall compared to the size and volume of water in the lake is just amazing. Both a must see!
Gorgeous scenery, many hiking trails and very few people on a Wednesday. It is a fee area to stop and enjoy. You can drive East and get to a beach area. The road offers a couple of views of Lake Meade that show impressive size. We got some rare desert summer rainfall, it was refreshing but evaporated shortly after hitting your skin. You should come here .
