It's easy to drive right by Soda Dam and not notice it (except for all the parked cars). This is a geologic wonder that shouldn't be missed. Just be careful parking along the side of the road. Don't forget to go around the "backside" of Soda Dam to see the gentle stream that runs through the Dam and creates the... 更多
This site is right on the side of highway 4 a short while after leaving Jemez Springs. There's a small waterfall that seems to come from under a giant rock (do climb it for some good pics!) and across the road there's more water but this one is a tiny hot spring that comes out of a hole in the... 更多
I have driven past this attraction for years, and I finally decided to stop and check it out. I'm glad I did! If you are passing through, and need a quick stretch-of-the-legs, then stop here. Soda Dam is a natural dam, where water from underground hot springs has flowed for centuries. The buildup of mineral deposits has formed this unique... 更多
The springs that make the dam have a high content of sulpher and other minerals in them, so yup...a little smelly. but absolutely worth the look.
This was a cool little pit stop. There is a little stream and pond that you can jump in and a waterfall about 20 feet away. My boys 7/11 loved it and splashed around for about an hour. It did get crowded because it was a summer day. It is really small, so you probably wouldn't want to stay there... 更多
Who would think that the deposits brought by the snow fed waters ultimately warmed by magma could create the little bulge that forces water to rush through it. A fun place to visit and just listen to the water as you sit in the shade and take in the warm New Mexican breezes.
This is a unique rock formation with the Jemez River dropping about 10 feet through the rock. I wouldn't drive a great distance to see this alone, but if you are in Jemez Springs its just north of town and worth seeing. We were there off season so it was easy to pull over and get a good look.
