This one is easy to miss as we didn't see any signage. Worth the stop to see one of nature's true curiosities.

There are many things to see in Jemez, but this is definitely a must! If you walk to the right about a mile up, you can see a waterfall also. It is not too far up. This is just the beginning but such a beauty.

Both rock and softness. Fascinating natural sculpture. Appears to be melting in place.Great place to tuck in for a photo. Along the highway north of Jemez Springs.

We stopped here along one of the most beautiful drives we have ever been on. The soda dam was kinda crowded, with alot of swimmers, people hiking around and climbing the dam. I really enjoyed the stop!

This natural Dam formation on the Jemez River is right along the highway with a parking pullout. It is an easy walk to get a close look and photos. It worth a stop just to see the amazing work of nature.

We probably weren't there for more than 15 minutes but a fun stop on the way to Battleship Rock. The sulphur smell was definitely present but my son enjoyed the quick stop.

This place was recommended to me by someone who had been here but I honestly don't know why. It was too crowded, smelled like rotten eggs and the water looked dirty. Although it was right off NM4 it was not not easy to find other than the sudden mass of cars nearby.
