Jemez Springs is a little over an hour from our house. The drive and the entire area are astonishingly beautiful, towering red cliffs, meandering river. Small campgrounds are along the river.
At Jemez Falls, the campground is trees and forest floor. Fragrant and cool. Reservations are needed and yet at the end of May, it was possible to drive in for a single night.
The walk from the campground to the falls is entirely doable. The falls were fairly deserted in the morning. Peaceful.
