Text of sign:

 

Jemez Mountains 

 

On the skyline to the west are the Jemez Mountains where tremendous volcanic eruptions a million years ago created a huge 

caldera some 15 miles in diameter that now forms beautiful Valle Grande set amid a ring of volcanic peaks. Geothermal energy has 

been tapped from hot rock beneath the mountains.
