Jemez River Swimming

When it gets hot here in New Mexico there are a limited number of places to cool off due to the lack of water in the state.

Since I love flyfishing, I knew of a place that was a small enough river for my young boys to handle a gentle current.

We ventured up into the Santa Fe National Forest just north of Jemez Pueblo and took a dip in the Jemez River.

The La Junta day use parking area is just north of the intersection of New Mexico Highway 4 and Highway 485, about a 35 minute drive from Bernalillo, NM (don’t speed in Jemez Pueblo).

As you can see by the video my kids and niece had a blast cooling off.

My real goal is to see if my boys like the moving water in hopes they may one day take to flyfishing like their dad 😉

Oh, here are the GPS Coordinates if you like them:  35.670873, -106.743095 or  +35° 40′ 15.14″, -106° 44′ 35.14″
