Mountains are always nice and snow makes them even more magical. On a higher point at night, we had an amazing view on the stars cos the sky is almost always clear in here. During just 2 hours we saw several animals - dears, rabbits. In the winter the road from Los Alamos to Jemez is a bit dangerous due... More

The only way to explain the beauty of this area is to come and visit. If you do not, it is your loss.

Be prepared for high altitudes--the Jemez Mountains begin at about 8600', but they are beautiful, varied, and oh so scenic. The air is sweet, indeed.

From the small parking lot off Highway 4 we hiked up a fairly easy incline to two quiet warm thermal pools overlooking the mountains. We idled in... More
