  • This is a beautiful mountain, the ride was easy and very enjoyable You could pack a lunch, bring water and have a picnic along the way.. 
  • The mountains will definitely take your breath away. The high altitude isn't for everyone. I personally had a lot of head preasure and dizziness. But I didn't let it stop me. They're gorgeous! 
  • The JemezMountain range is awesome.The strata of colors through out the Jemez Caldera mountain range is breathtaking. The land is arid. Notice 'road runners"...rabbits, little critters ..and snakes!
