Day 5...Yesterday we drove into north east new mexico- the jemez mountains. Much greener than i thought it would be . We stopped in santa fe for some food for camping to fix our bikes and for an amazing dinner at the ore house. We had margaritas ceveche and poblano rellenos . Then up into the mountains for some camping. Look up photos of valles caldero. we passed it on the way to our site there were hundreds of elk grazing and bugling it was beautiful. We camped at the last site at the campground and were up with the sun to find the secret san antonio hot springs. We had some hand written directions from richard and from lori and our toothless hippie friend rick in la cueva. After a 5 mile hike in we enjoyed a 102 degree soak overlooking mountain cliffs. 5 miles back to the car wasn't as muah fun but it was beautiful and hot! Back in the car but the drive was breath taking the red rocks and mesas were an outstanding way to leave new mexico ... Now we are off to colorado to see mesa verde tonight we are staying in durango colorado.
