Jemez Mountains

With the temperatures in the triple digits in the city, it is a good time to escape the heat to the Jemez Mountains, less than an hour’s drive from Albuquerque. We plan to have several other entries about specific places in the Jemez, so this entry is an overview. We have recommended a drive through the Jemez to visitors, yet few take the trip. Perhaps some photos will be more enticing than just words.
