Peak location map:
The Jemez Mountains of Northern New
Mexico are so heavily forested that viewing the peaks is sometimes
slideshow for this report shows some of the largest, or most
interesting, peaks in the Jemez as viewed (generally) from atop
click photo to
the high peak on the left skyline. Caballo Mountain is on the
right skyline closest to the camera. Polvadera Peak is hidden behind and
to the north of Chicoma. This photo was taken looking north
from the top of the Pajarito Mountain, near the Aspen Lift.
I spent a fair amount of time
exploring the Jemez with my friends this year, and decided to get a
few photos of the the peaks themselves rather than just the climbs.
I've included a map (see above) that helps to locate
the peaks on a topo map.
Redondo Peak as seen from
near the "East Fork Trailhead" on NM4. Redondo is a large central
mountain that can be seen from many locations in the Jemez. This
view is from the east. The smoke at center screen is from the
remnants of a fire I reported recently.
For your convenience, I have also
included links to LAM trip reports that contain these photos, and to
other LAM trip reports that are about Jemez activities:
