Spotlight On New Mexico – Jemez in Pictures

Since moving to Albuquerque New Mexico in 2008, one of the things I have discovered about myself is that I love hiking. New Mexico’s weather is absolutely perfect for outdoor lovers; mild winters, 358 days of sunshine, picturesque landscapes and the biggest bluest skies I have ever seen, I spend as much time as I can in nature. Luckily I’ve stumbled on to a group of people with the same passion through Meetups. We hike in different towns most weekend. Oh yeah you can find fantastic hiking trails EVERYWHERE in New Mexico.

I’ve been to Jemez Mountains (pronounced HEH-mez) several times and below are pictures from some of my trips.

When you first enter Jemez via Highway 4, you are greeted by these towering red rocks.
