essay bro:


The Rio Nambe near Pojoaque has wonderful natural occurring waterfalls as it drops thru a sheer-walled gorge immediately below Nambe dam.  The highest one is about 100 feet high.  This is within Nambe Pueblo land.  A well-kept, beautiful campground owned by the tribe is open to the public for a reasonable fee.  A hike up to the waterfalls is quite exceptional.
