 Lake Mead

"There is more wildlife than you can imagine:  Bighorn sheep; Coyotes, Cottontail rabbits, Jackrabbits, Burros, Badgers, Fox, Squirrels...and many birds.  The ducks and geese are quite likely to come to your boat for a handout.  We removed a fishhook from a little Western Grebe [named Zorba, of course] and he followed our boat for ten days.  Our dogs were delighted and hung by their toes over the rail to reach him as he swam alongside trying to reach up to them as well.  After the spring changeover, the water will be almost as warm as the air, and in summer it gets HOT at this lake.  Fall is our favorite time to sail, enjoying the crisp, cool evenings and the warm, fragrant days.
