24 Hours in Jemez Springs

By Ty Bannerman

A trip to the Jemez Mountains is the perfect get-away for Burqueños fleeing their city in any season. However, when cold winds and snowbanks preemptively ruin picnic plans, it's good to know that the tiny town of Jemez Springs has several options for warming your bones with good food and drink, no matter what time of day you arrive.
