Get Away From It All At This Crystal Clear Lake In New Mexico

While the Land of Enchantment is full of beautiful rivers like the Rio Grande, massive lakes like Elephant Butte, and plenty of hikes and adventures to take in the likes of the Santa Fe National Forest, this lake in Navajo Dam in Northern New Mexico is the ultimate nature oasis. This is the second largest lake in the state, but the crystal clear waters are as blue as they come. Whether you’re looking to go boating, kayaking, or just get away from life for awhile on a sandy beach, this Navajo Dam lake is the perfect serene lake destination in New Mexico.
