I am camping at Bottomless Lakes State Park about 12 miles east of Roswell, New Mexico, and I think if they didn't have a policy requiring you leave after 14 days I would stay here forever. It is truly a beautiful place to be camped. Well, there's also the fact that I don't have a sewer hook up and I think the black tank is getting close to its limit. But seriously, dear readers, if you ever find yourself in this part of the country you should at least come spend the day here.

There are a total of 8 lakes in the park with names like Lazy Lagoon and Devil's Inkwell. My favorite is Mirror Lake which is 50 ft deep and during the low water season (like now) there is a narrow strip of land that seems to divide the lake into 2 parts.

So I am enjoying myself thoroughly here but will have to leave soon. Until then I will take another swim, another trail walk, another bike ride. Maybe find another cache (there are 12 in the park) or go out to the bird blinds to look for those elusive ducks.
