Ordinarily, Echo Bay in Lake Mead would be thriving on a pleasant March day with temperatures in the 80’s. But the drought has dropped water levels so much in Lake Mead that the road to the marina is closed because waters levels are too. The restaurant and hotel are shuttered. Â There’s a bedraggled RV area but that’s about it. No stores, no activity, just a couple of boats on a day when in normal times, there would be many.
