Not sure if it's normal or not, but it was extremely windy the day we visited. Having said that, it's a beautiful view, both driving & hiking. If you're in the Roswell area, this is a must! There is a little educational museum on location showing you lots about the park. Would visit again!

Bottomless Lakes State Park was New Mexico's first state park, claimed by the state in 1933. There are seven small park lakes bordered by high red bluffs, Bottomless Lakes State Park offers a variety of sports including hiking, swimming, fishing, and scuba diving. The lakes are water filled sinkholes in the local gypsum terrain. Odd geology and water chemistry create homes for unusual plants and animals, like the Pecos sunflower. Lea Lake is the deepest lake at 90 feet and is the only lake where swimming is allowed. During summer, visitors can rent paddleboards and pedal boats for a small fee. Devil's Inkwell is 32 ft. deep and is named for its steep sides and dark water, the result of algae growth. This lake, as well as Cottonwood Lake, are stocked with rainbow trout in winter.
