Heck, you can’t turn on the news without hearing the latest update on the Fiscal Cliff — so let’s jump on the bandwagon and talk about it here, too!

I just ran across an interesting article (from Dec. 10th) on the Las Vegas Review Journal’s website that reviews how the National Park Service could face huge cuts under either a last-minute deal or automatic deductions if there isn’t a last-minute deal…you can read the entire article by clicking here.

The article says, among other things, some cool facts about Lake Mead that I didn’t know…for instance, the National Park Service manages almost 400 sites and that Lake Mead has the sixth highest total number of visitors (6.4 million last year).  Pretty interesting, so give it a read over on the LVRJ website, if ya like!
