This is just a wonderful drive with so many picturesque spots to stop. We had a great time. We have driven this both ways, but find it best going up from Albuquerque to Los Alamos.
Gorgeous red mountains against the blue sky. Lots of photo ops, and many places to hike and see it up close. Rivers, hot springs, hiking trails, you name it, its there.
We drove from Santa Fe through Bandelier N.P. then continued on to Jemez Springs on Rt. 4. I search out scenic drives and this one was very beautiful.

The Jemez Mountains are amazing. I wish I could visit more often. On my recent visit I could hike up to a wonderful hot spring. It was as beautiful as I remember it.
Its only about 1 hr away, but what a nice drive, the Jemez Moutains are an old Volcane, with the center being the Valles Caderia, the place is a great grass land with a herd of 1000 elk. Train tunnels are up there and Indian ruins, great place to visit
