Bottomless Lakes State Park

These shots are from Bottomless State Park in New Mexico.  My truck in the photo above gives you an idea of how large these bluffs are. 


This shot is at Mirror Lake this morning, which would have been more like a mirror, except for the nice breeze. 

This is the other side of Mirror Lake with what looks like a sandbar between the two.  It's actually hard packed desert earth, which has a tiny connecting stream through the lakes.  It does have tiny fish going between the two, they're less than 2 inches long.

This is a closer look at the composition of these bluffs.  In contrast to these photos, much of this area is a valley which was the site of a shallow sea ages ago.
