Sightseeing & Activities

Jet skiing Lake Mohave (Arizona & Nevada)

July 2, 2019 |

How do we enjoy the outdoors with the high of 104°F here? We are up & at em at 5:30am. Get to Lake Mohave by 7:00am. Although, in hindsight, sunrise’s at 5:23am so, that would be the optimal time to arrive at the lake in order to beat: (1) any weekday crowd, if any (2) the heat (3) the winds. Read More
