las conchas


Santa Fe is an ideal launching point for a deep catalogue of day hikes, many of which we took advantage of. One of our favorites was Las Conchas, a valley in the Jemez Mountains about 25 minutes past Los Alamos. Walking in the area is easy and picturesque - the perfect adventure for both two and four-legged hiking enthusiasts. On the way to the trailhead we passed by the Valles Caldera - a sight that is worth the visit in its own right.
