Bandelier National Monument

Next, it’s off to Los Alamos for lunch in a local restaurant.  Along the way you’ll pass through the Los Alamos National Laboratory, home of the Nuclear Age.  And because this lab specializes in national security, we won’t be stopping or taking any photographs while passing through the lab’s grounds.

Jemez Mission Church Ruin

After lunch you’ll continue up into the Jemez Mountains and into the Valles Caldera Preserve, a super volcano that collapsed in on itself after its eruption a million years ago.  The preserve is home to elk and deer, as well as some of the best fly fishing in the region.  You’ll follow the Jemez River from the caldera down through Jemez Valley, stopping at the Jemez Historical Site where you’ll stroll through the ruins of a 17th century Spanish Mission and a 13th century pueblo with a restored kiva you can climb into.  After this you’ll head back to Santa Fe passing through Jemez and Zia Pueblos along the way.
