And I got to see it last month, when I did a takeover for the @TravelNewMexico Instagram account. (I won’t make a crude joke here, though the word “hole” just about demands it, don’t you think?)
Ahem. The Blue Hole is near Santa Rosa, NM, and it’s one of seven lakes that are linked to an underground water system. I can’t say I would have called it a lake, as it’s tiny, but there are a few interesting things about it:
It stays at a constant 62 degrees Fahrenheit, even in the winter.
It’s 82′ deep, making it a great spot for scuba diving.
Meaning – you can scuba dive in New Mexico. Crazy!
The lesson is this: if you’re a wayward scuba enthusiast and happen to be passing through the high desert, not to worry. The Blue Hole awaits.
