Aerial view of a portion the water and surroundings of Lake Mead, created by the construction of nearby Hoover Dam, which straddles the Arizona-Nevada border. The dam harnessed the Colorado River to create the widespread reservoir in the early 1930s. Lake Mead became the locus of a widespread national recreation area, popular with boaters and fishers.
