Monticello Canyon, New Mexico
Monticello Canyon in central New Mexico has warm Springs in several places along the meandering route of the Alamosa River. This canyon and the 98 ºF warm springs (Ojo Caliente) was where the Apache Chief, Geronimo and his band hid from the U.S. Calvary but were ultimately captured at the mouth of the Monticello Canyon in 1876. He was released a year later and spent ten years raiding and creating general havoc until his surrender in 1886 near Douglas, Arizona. Cochise and Victorio both Chiricahua Apache leaders also frequented here. This is near the area where Marietta Palmer Wetherill met Geronimo as a young girl.
