essay bro:


You will see the sign for Jemez Falls Campground along Highway 4 half way between the towns of Los Alamos and Jemez Springs.  This is the heart of the Jemez Mountains in Santa Fe National Forest.  Jemez Falls descends about 40 feet of volcanic bedrock.  Upper Jemez Falls is a couple hundred yards upstream.  Several other wonderful falls await your admiration below Jemez Falls.  Like all of New Mexico high elevation, forested mountain areas, the Jemez River flows full in April and May while frozen in snow pack from Thanksgiving thru Easter.
