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.
Ute Reservoir, New Mexico
After a three-year environmental-impact study that concluded in January 2011, the Ute Reservoir is slated to become part of a rural water project in eastern New Mexico. The project would pipe water from the Ute into the cities of Clovis, Elida, Grady, Melrose, Portales, and Texico as well as the Cannon Air Force Base and rural areas of Curry and Roosevelt counties. The reservoir is popular with boaters.
