Daniel - Lake Mead is in Nevada. it is a great place to go. I would suggest going in the spring or fall, when it is not so hot.
we had one late afternoon, where we had like 50 mph winds, and then one monsoon came in on our last night, and rained all night. but other than that, it was hot, and good water most all day. our cove was protected really well also. here is the picture from the other side of our cove, in the main channel. not pretty.
