I was able to take the most beautiful pictures while at the Welcome center and they also have a small gift shop with souvenirs and hand crafted items from Native American artists.

The Jemez Mountains are simply beautiful. Located about 60 miles north of Albuquerque, this is a drive you don't want to miss. The various red colors provide great scenery.
