We ventured along highway 4 after a couple we had met in ABQ told us about the area. This ended up being the highlight of our trip. There is a beautiful waterfall along the road. We stopped and bought authentic Native American food that was reasonably priced and very good. Bring a water bottle and some shoes you don't mind... More

Route 4 twists and turns through the scenic Jemez Mountains. Coming from Albuquerque, you'll drive through the Jemez Pueblo where the poverty exists side by side with spectacular red rock beauty. Note the hornos in virtually every yard - most are still in use just as they were centuries ago. There are many hiking trails, numerous pull offs for fishing... More

The scenery is spectacular, but I wouldn't spend more than a day here. It is a depressed area, so be prepared to see a lot of poverty on the drive up from the south side. We even saw some illegal dumping on one our drives off of Highway 4. However, the drive up 4 from Los Alamos is fantastic. The... More

An amazing trip - either for a special feast day like today, or simply to wander through the local attractions. Beautiful place!

Then went to the soda dam and that was nice to see the water flowing out of the rock on the side of highway. We... More

The scenery coming from the south, State Highway 4 off of 550, west of Bernalillo, NM, is spectacular, as is the scenery coming from Santa Fe through Los Alamos from the north, where the Valles Caldera is located. Either route will lead to the small town of Jemez Springs, where there's an upscale spa and hot springs, some shops, a... More
