    On October 4, 2013 I visited Soda Dam. It's location is conveniently located off the main highway. Soda Dam is
    A magnificent natural dam formed in the Jemez River by the precipitation of minerals from a collection of hot springs.The dam is located immediately off the main highway and is well worth a stop. Soda Dam was created over hundreds of years by hot mineral water flow. The hot springs precipitated minerals (including calcium carbonate) that eventually formed a dam across the Jemez River, constricting the river's flow.
