(nr Hopewell Lake NM)
Going over the pass on US-64, through the Carson National Forest, there were three rest areas with views. One of them provided a good look at, what I believe, was Jawbone Mountain standing 10,601ft high.
Some have said they are the Brazos Cliffs. But, those are clearly visible at one of the other pull-outs, far away and across a wide expanse. Plus, I know what they look like. What I saw was much closer.
This rock face has always intrigued me. I remember stopping to gaze and marvel on a trip decades ago. Just thought I’d share one of the great scenes found in New Mexico.
