Morphy Lake is one of the New Mexico State parks. I was there on a Wednesday. Lots of room, and a beautiful little lake and snow covered mountains in June. Site #17 was a pretty spot. There were 2 blue herons that would skim the lake early every morning, and chipmunks that loved my treats.
There was no drinking water or showers, only pit toilets. But it was quiet and beautiful. The quiet lasted only until that afternoon. The park is very popular with day anglers. Then there was a combination of Fathers’ Day and a release of 80,000 fish. The park became wildly popular. Like Villanueva once the rigs were packed in, bumper to bumper, I was fed hot dogs and cinnamon buns. The noise level was so intense that I moved to another site. #19 was somewhat isolated. Even that spot wasn’t enough isolation for me. I could hear Latino rock and roll at all hours. Lovers fighting, dogs barking, children screaming with joy and energy. The only trail was one that went around the lake, 3/4 of a mile. And it was always crowded with anglers. I stayed only 10 days and then headed on.
