Time’s Up For The Colorado River Basin Water Plans
For more than two decades the west has become increasingly dry, though the serious implications have often been overlooked by the general public. No more. The Bureau of Reclamation has ordered the seven states with land in the Colorado River Basin to create a water conservation plan by August 16, 2022.
The west is considering diverting water from the Mississippi River to solve its water woes.
States like Arizona, Nevada, and California are experiencing long-term water shortages and drought. The Colorado River is at historic lows.

Discovering Willow Beach on the Colorado River
We frequently drive to Las Vegas from Albuquerque and our path takes us up Highway 93 from Kingman to Las Vegas. On our recent trip, we decided to stop at the Willow Beach turnoff and see what we could find. We discovered a nice oasis on the Colorado River. Willow Beach has picnic grounds, campgrounds, and a marina where they rent watercraft, boats, kayaks and paddle boards. Emerald Cove can be reached by kayak from this location.
Laughlin, NEVADA-Would I do it again?
Laughlin, Nevada-Would I do it again? Day 2. This was my first time visiting Laughlin, Nevada. Day 2 started early and finished very late. We visited all the casinos along the Colorado River to include Tropicana. During our entire visit to Laughlin we stayed at the Harrah's Laughlin Hotel & Casino. For sure not a 24hr city like Las Vegas, yes the casinos are open 24/7 but it doesn't have that feel at night. Weather was warm in the day, and mild at night. Keep in mind that this trip was made at the end of October. As for casinos on the Colorado river you have: Golden Nugget Aquarius Tropicana (Close but not on the river) Laughlin River Lodge Harrahs Pioneer Riverside Edgewater Colorado Belle (Recently closed indefinite) 2020
