Ojo Caliente

Ojo Caliente is a small community in Taos County, New Mexico most well-known for its healing mineral springs. The resort, which was built in 1924, is the place to go for a couple days of relaxation and restoration.

There are plenty of areas for slowly wandering,

While taking in the captivating scent of burning Pinon firewood.

Of course, if you just need somewhere quiet for planning resolutions, there are plenty of places to do that as well.

There are even nice hiking trails for taking in the sunrise, should you feel so motivated.

You will be cold. You may be tired. But as golden hour starts to take over the red rocks and snow covered hills, not much else will matter.

Not pictured here are the multiple, healing hot springs at the resort. They are the highlight of the resort, but they deserve to be enjoyed without the interruption of people taking photographs.

  8. OH HEY! We went there one time. It was super calming, except for the hike where the signs told us to carry rocks in our hands to ward off mountain lions:). Ha! Healing spas, calm flute music, a nice southwest restaurant, starry night skies and big cat hikes . . . walking in the jungle, walking in the jungle, we’re not afraid . . . we’re not a-fraiid. Totally cool place.
