Rio Grande Gorge Bridge
Taos, NM, NM, USA
Rio Grande Gorge BridgeDriving from Taos to Santa Fe, NM we ventured over the Rio Grande on a detour to the Earthships. About 10 miles west of Taos, this 500+ foot bridge is extravagant. A fear of heights and high bridges will not help you over this bridge, but what will are the gravel parking lot on the road surrounding, spacious sidewalks over it, and platforms in the middle for pedestrians to look around. For a person like me with a mild fear of heights, it was like a free roller coaster ride. Also, white water rafters can be seen in the water below. That is something to do on our next trip!
