Warning--this is a self-indulgent thread full of pix. It really is my favorite place on earth!

This is Beverly at the Jemez Falls campground:

These are Ponderosa pines. They smell like vanilla!

This is the lowest and biggest pool. Fewer fish there. Look how clear the water is!

My family owes you a debt of gratitude, kahlua! Thank you so much.

We're talking about a day trip this weekend to Battleship--hike down to McCauley from there. We've never gone that route.

Oh and I forgot one detail! It's 1.75 mile hike from the campground to the warm springs. It is downhill to get there, which means uphill to get back. I made the return trip in 40 minutes. That's a personal best for me!

You have some very nice pictures of your family and the area. I am read where you said how clear the water was, and I had to look twice to see the water! Glad you all got to go, had beautiful weather and such a wonderful time.

I love your pictures! It looks sooo perfect--except for the bugs and lack of A/C and indoor plumbing

There really aren't any bugs...best of all, no mosquitoes! You don't need A/C at that elevation--the high was maybe in the low 80s. It got to the mid-40s overnight. Indoor plumbing...eh. The campground has vault toilets and I am very good at peeing in the woods.

What gorgeous scenery! I'm so glad you were able to go, it looks like a blast.

You and your family are beautiful.

I am not good at peeing in the woods (unless the woods has a toilet). I always pee on my clothes.
