The Soda Dam is a natural dam created by a buildup of calcium deposits in the Jemez River. This fascinating outer-worldly mass of gnarled and twisted rock is 40 feet and growing. Wading is permitted but be careful as water levels change frequently depending on season and rains. Heated from volcanic powers below the area sometimes has a sulfurous odor.
