Lake Mead

We also flew over Las Vegas and Lake Mead.
Lake Mead carries the name of former U.S. Commissioner of Reclamation Elwood C. Mead and has a capacity of 28.6 million acre feet of water. An acre foot is equivalent to one acre of land covered by one foot of water, or the amount of water used by a family of four in a year.
