LAKE MEAD NATIONAL RECREATION AREA
896,000 acres in Arizona (1,480,000 acres total). Located in northwest Arizona just west of Grand Canyon National Park, as well as in the southeast corner of Nevada, this National Recreation Area features 110-mile-long Lake Mead and 67-mile-long Lake Mohave. Both were formed by damming up the Colorado River.
In this desert region are mountains, plateaus, canyons, and sandstone formations. With some sandy beaches along the shore, the lake attract many tourists and there’s-lots of boating. Vegetation includes joshua tree and cactus, with mule deer, bighorn sheep, mountain lion, and coyote among the wildlife.
Activities: Hiking, backpacking, and horseback riding are possible within the National Recreation Area, but most travel must be cross-country since there are few established trails. Fishing is available at the lakes. Hunting is permitted in portions of the area.
Camping Regulations: A large number of established campsites are available along the lake-shores. Backcountry camping and campfires are allowed here as well as elsewhere, except near developed areas or where otherwise prohibited. No permits are required. Since summers are very hot here, the best time to visit is October through May.
For Further Information: Lake Mead National Recreation Area, 601 Nevada Highway, Boulder City, NV 89005; (702)293-8907.
The Virginia Company leadership is devastated by news of the attack Washington Subway Map and never fully recovers from the shock. James I initiates quo warranto (by what authority) Washington Subway Map proceedings, which will force the company to prove it should be allowed to continue operations. James I’s untimely death in 1625 brings King Charles I to the throne; shortly thereafter, he declares Virginia to be a royal colony and removes the Virginia Company from control. 1634 Virginia organizes into counties, which become the main political units of the colony. County-level courts handle civil matters, and their decisions can be appealed to the General Assembly. Each county receives some appointed officials, including justices of the peace, sheriffs, clerks, and deputies. 1639 King Charles I secures the uncertain future of the Virginia general assembly when he authorizes it to continue. The assembly had been meeting regularly under his appointed governor, but with no official legal sanction since the Virginia Company’s removal from power.
