1 of 5Grand Canyon West

This is a planned real estate development near Lake Mead. People put money in - sight unseen - thinking that "near Lake Mead" meant they'd have a view of Lake Mead. Or be near it.

As it were, the answer turned out to be "neither".

A bit north of this (now failed and stalled) development is a place called Meadview - from which you also can't see the lake. But the name sure looks nice.

The lake itself is the sandy dried-out patch near the horizon - if it is at all possible to have a view of a lake that has no water is a question left for the philosophers.
