Rio Grande Gorge Bridge

Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, Taos NM | Enchanted New Mexico

I was actually at the Gorge Bridge for the first time on December 30, 2014. I can tell you, it was definitely a more pleasant experience in October — without freezing temperatures, cutting winds, and ice all over the walkways making you fear that you just might slip into the gorge!

This tourist destination is the fifth highest bridge in the United States, hovering 650 feet (200 m) above the Rio Grande. I refer to it as New Mexico’s Grand Canyon. Not much more to do here than take in the views and wonder at the marvels of nature (unless you count a few roadside vendors), but good to see if you’re in the area.
