Red Rock Mesa, Jemez Springs

Hidden Passage

Evangeline Chavez 2009

The Village of Jemez Springs is  nestled between stunning red rock mesas (remnants of ancient lava flows over a million years old).The  Village is named for its famous mineral hot springs. Fissures in the earth allow water near the surface to contact rock below that is heated by the magma underneath. The result is a relatively steady supply of natural mineral hot springs that bubble up throughout the Valley.
