Valles Caldera Remains a Volcanic Wonder
25 January 2007

Just outside of Jemez Springs is a New Mexican spectacular landscape known as Valles Caldera. Its grassy green bowls are the remains of a collapsed volcano which once spewed hot lava and ash to help form the surrounding Jemez Mountains.

The land was purchased six years ago by the federal government for $101 million. Formerly, it was an 89,000 acre cattle ranch which many Albuquerqueans keep in their memory bank. Today there remain not only 1,500 miles of logging roads and 65,000 acres of forests, but also coyotes, hawks, streams, and serene beauty.

Knolls natives will be interested in this other piece of paradise. Mark it on your calendars for a pleasant Spring ride.
