| Ojo Caliente is a
diverse and unusual place; it sits on the west side of the Rocky
Mountains in a valley that was once the home of over 2,000 Apache Indians.
There are still the remains of many pueblo sites on the mesas around the valley,
most center around the historic mineral springs that boasts four types of waters:
Iron, Soda, Lithia, and Arsenic.
The Arsenic was especially popular before the advent of penicillin for in its small
quantities, it acts as an antibiotic.
There are also many hiking or biking trails that lead to the many abondoned mines and Indian sites with spectacular views.
The valley also has been noted increasingly as a sanctuary for many species of birds.
It has never been sprayed with pesticides, and is the flight path for the migrating Sandhill Cranes, and is a popular place for bird watchers.
The Sandhill Cranes; there are thousands of them that fly by every spring and fall.
