"252 -- Lea Lake, Bottomless Lakes State Park, Near Roswell, N.M. The legend of the origin of the name of this area is interesting. Cowboys in the early days tied several lariats together to measure the depth of the lakes. Unable to touch bottom, the name "BOTTOMLESS" was bestowed and has remained. Lea Lake is the center of the recreation area. The deep crystal waters, nestling in strange rock formations, reflect pictures ever changing, while the rim drive affords wonderful views of the lakes and surrounding country."
