Nothing beats the sublime beauty of a desert lake, its azure waters shimmering dreamily against the golden hues around it, green grasses waving invitingly in the breeze, beckoning to thirsty animals and weary travelers.
Navajo Reservoir, New Mexico
Although the Navajo Reservoir is primarily located in northwestern New Mexico, it extends into southern Colorado as well. It's part of the Colorado River Storage project, which manages water for irrigation. The Navajo Reservoir is a great locale for camping, hiking, and boating. The lake contains substantial populations of black crappie, channel catfish, northern pike, smallmouth bass, and trout. The Pine River and Sims Mesa areas of the lakeshore are the most developed, with visitor centers, campgrounds and marinas. The San Juan River, world-renowned for trout fishing, lies nearby.
