Some of New Mexico’s beautiful waterfalls

Brazos Falls, New Mexico’s highest, descends 1,300 feet in two tiers.

The deep sheer-walled gorge below Resumidero Falls is peaceful and quite secluded.

A forest service sign along forest road 93 in the northern Jemez Mountains identifies this falls.

About a mile below Resumidero Falls is 50-foot high Echo Falls.  Her brother Box Falls in the far upper left-hand corner above, is half her height.

Leaping over Echo Falls is the last thing Rito Resumidero does before it conflues with the Rio Puerco.
