GILMAN TUNNELS--If you haven't been here you haven't seen the Jemez Mtns. Turn left just north of Canon. Originally built for the railroad that used to haul timber out of the Jemez down to Bernalillo, they enlarged the tunnels so that logging trucks would fit. Railroading artifacts are to be found all through here...even up towards Cuba on what was known as "The High Line." To take that route (after the road opens in the spring) turn left up the hill just before the bridge at Porter's Landing.
