Another less than stellar stitch of three pics. The line you see separating the dark ground from the white is the high water mark of Lake Mead. The water hasn't been that high since 1983 when they had to use the spillway system to release the excess build up of water. The present water level is about 150 feet lower due to drought conditions that have existed since 1993. The tour guide said the level of Lake Mead is about 60 feet below "normal" due to increased demand as well as the on going drought.
