Lake Mead - Gypsum Wash

This is a photo of a view looking downstream along Gypsum Wash.

Detailed Description

This view looking downstream along Gypsum Wash shows the typical appearance of a seasonally active desert wash-having a broad, active floodplain with multiple bifurcating channels and rills formed by episodic sediment-laden flood waters. Gypsum Wash is located near milepost 2 on the Northshore Road. This shows the River Mountains on the west side of Lake Mead National Recreation Area in the distance.
