    Eleven years into my Las Vegas residency, and I only have one memory of the Lake Mead National Recreation Area—a beautiful spring day in 2004 when I hiked while my six-month-old son slept in a baby carrier strapped to my back. Nine years and numerous ‘ring-around-the-lake’ comments later, I’m reminded that Lake Mead is a force on the national parks scene.
