Obviously Lake Mead National Recreation Area (NRA) is known for water. Besides containing two very large man-made lakes, however, the NRA is home to a number of beautiful and fascinating perennial hot, warm and cold springs. Water is the lifeblood of desert ecosystems. These springs provide not only habitat for unique wildlife and plant species, but also great destinations for visitors to enjoy.
