Stone Beauty: Brazos Cliffs near Heron Lake, New Mexico
View of the Brazos Cliffs in scenic mountainous northern New Mexico. Horses graze in the foreground and the San Jose church can be seen in the middle distance in the village of Los Ojos.
Anglers, paddlers, and sailors in the Heron Lake area often find their eyes drawn to the splendid sight of the Brazos Cliffs.
During the spring snowmelt season, a short-lived seasonal waterfall may appear.
Though not shown in these views, which were taken a few miles east of the Heron Lake Marina, visitors can see snow-capped mountains of New Mexico and Colorado during much of the year, including peaks 30 or more miles distant.
