East Fork of the Jemez

East Fork of the Jemez

I suppose you could say the East Fork of the Jemez is my favorite body of water. It’s actually a very modest little babbling brook that’s easily crossed on foot in most places, most times of the year, so “body of water” is perhaps too grand a characterization — but I do love every inch I’ve ever seen of it. This shot shows what I think of as a fairly typical Jemez “tent” rock along the stream, on a late summer afternoon.

Jemez Halloween

Halloween Horse and Buggy Ride

There’s a really amazing Halloween/Dia de los Muertos display in the Jemez this year, on Highway 485 (to the Gilman Tunnels). The entrance features a very large skull:

There are real, honest-to-god gravestones:

Many of the displays move:

And there’s much, much more.
