E. Jemez River to La Cueva Lodge – 16 miles
Man oh man, we lived through one of the most powerful thunder storms last night. It was right in top of us and I wished I had ear plugs. That loud!
If you ever get a chance hike the E. Jemez River Trail, it is idyllic, with easy trail and a meandering river. Along the way we visited Jemez Falls, MacCauley Warm Springs (jumped in fully clothed), and Battleship Rock.
The La Cueva Lodge is lovely, with an amazing food truck parked in front with burgers and the best curly fries I have ever eaten. It is always a relief when resupply boxes are waiting. More rain and thunder this evening, but we are sheltered, hydrated, and very clean. Life is pretty fine.
