|Lake Mead Photos - The North Shore Road|
|The North Shore Road is
State Highway 159 from the Lake Mead Blvd intersection up to the Valley
of Fire intersection.
This 45 mile drive along the western shore of the northern part of Lake Mead is one of the most scenic rides in Southern Nevada.
If you have ever seen car or truck commercials any time in the last 2 decades, you will have seen the North shore Road or the Valley of Fire.
|What makes this place so
interesting is the stark contrasts in topography, color, geology, vistas
and much more.
Along the way is are three of Lake Meads marinas.
|Callville Bay Marina,
Echo Bay Marina, and Overton Beach Marina. If you are coming from Las
Vegas, it is suggested that you either continue on through the Valley of
Fire or drive through to Overton, Logandale and Mesquite.
|At the 12.5 MM (mile
marker), we see red sandstone outcroppings eroded out of twisted and
turned layers of ancient rock.
|Even when the the rocks and stat are not as colorful, they still take interesting and unusual shapes.|
