I am a Jemez history geek. I love nothing better than to find some old cabin village in the wilderness, or an old pueblo ruin atop an isolated mesa.
I’ve spent years exploring various parts of the Jemez, slowly learning about the history of each area, and benefiting from the knowledge of previous explorers like Bandelier and Hewitt. No matter how much I explore and research, there is always something new to discover there.
I continually read stories in books about old resorts, ranches and hotels that are now just empty spaces in the forest full of broken relics from yesteryear. One of those places was an old ranch called the Lazy Ray; but I was never really clear on exactly where it was located.
I had long admired photos and old post card reproductions of the place in books. It was a sprawling and exclusive ranch from the 1920s to 1960s, advertised to only house 35 guests at a time. It contained an old trading post, numerous cabins, a swimming pool, steam rooms, and even decorative water fountains. Guests could spend the day soaking in nearby natural hot springs, fishing for trout in local streams and ponds, or hunting in the forest that surrounded the resort.
