    Default Nevada Overton to Hoover Dam via "lake road"

    Not a favorite, just a road report. On the map, this is the road from Overton to the dam that is nearest the lake.

    Ride: July 2009, Friday, PM
    Gas Available: Accross from the casino soon after picking up US 93 south
    Direction: West
    Avg Speed: 55
    Flora: Low desert
    Fauna Encounters: 0
    Subjective Temp: Warm. [I live in Phoenix, AZ]
    Road Condition: Poor, Fair, then Good with intermitent sweepers and a few tighter corners. Top one third, out of Overton, there are three places down to dirt. Each one maybe 1/2 mile long on average. Next one third, the road becomes fair with older center reflectors. About two thirds of the way to the dam, the road becomes good with new center reflectors all the way. Good signage for direction to the dam.
    Got to the dam around 9'ish. Went right on through. No backups, but steady traffic in both directions.
    Smokeys Seen: 0
    Cars Passing Same Direction: 2
    Cars Passed Same Direction: 0
    Cars Passed Opposite Direction: few

    BTW, Overton is a hole. Move on. Present residents excepted, of course.
