breezes attract colorful wind-surfing boards to
Storrie Lake State Park, which is also popular for
fishing and boating. The visitor center features
historical photos of the Santa Fe Trail and 19th
century Las Vegas.
Storrie Lake State
Park is four miles north of Las Vegas via NM 518.
The lake's serene
waters are open for fishing year-round. Storrie Lake
boasts consistent winds that provide excellent
conditions for sailing and windsurfing.
Birdwatching is a
must in order to view the geese and ducks that flock
to the lake during seasonal migrations. Follow
walking-trails through sagebrush-covered landscape
spotted with cactus, yucca and wildflowers.
With the arrival of
the Santa Fe Railway in 1879, Las Vegas and the
surrounding area became a hangout of some the
shadiest characters of the Old West, including Doc
Holliday, Billy the Kid and Wyatt Earp.
