Homeward Bound Part 2, Wikieup, AZ to Boulder City, NV

This leg of our trip home was shorter at only 130 miles. We decided to stop at Lake Mead because our last travel day was a bit much for Rob to tolerate and we wanted to camp with an amazing view of the lake out of back window. 

We did have an amazing view...for about an hour until another RV pulled in next to us and complete blocked our view of the lake. You win some, you lose some.

The photos you see in this post were taken from the sites nearest the lake last night as the sun was going down. The water in very low. You can see the old water line in the picture above. 

We're in Nevada now, only 26 miles from Las Vegas. I get to put another sticker on the map. We aren't huge fans of Vegas. We prefer Reno because it has character and is much less expensive. We are planning a stop there.

It's really hot here again today and tomorrow we head for Beatty, NV. Beatty is sometimes referred to as the gateway to Death Valley dun, dun, dun!

  1. Even though the water level is very low, those are beautiful pictures.

  2. So sorry someone parked in the way of your splendid view. Unfortunately, rude folks in the world are "alive and well." :-(

    1. Desert Diva, I am always shocked when there are so many spaces open and someone comes in and parks right next to us. It's like they are afraid to be alone. Crazy!!
