Jemez Springs Journals

Land of Enchantment

A June 2005 trip to Jemez Springs by Michael J Webb

Quote: The Santa Fe National Forest surrounding the town of Jemez provides a wonderland for those willing to get wet and wild. Visit the many ruins of Bandelier, search San Antonio Creek for an amazing hot spring, or run the Rio Chama.

Bandelier National Monument

Attraction | "Bandelier N.M."

Visiting the large village cliff dwelling, and the Ceremonial Cave located directly behind the visitor center is a great place to start a visit. This hike is short and has little elevation gain. To enter the Ceremonial Cave, one must climb several ladders, which adds some adventure.

San Antonio Canyon



San Antonio Canyon is a perfect mix of hot and cold running water, primitive campsites, and peace. Throw in volcanic tent rock and turf cliffs, wildflowers, and wild berries, and you have a romantic backcountry experience.
