A Rural New Mexico Drive to the Rio Grande Bridge


After a relaxing loop that started and ended in Santa Fe New Mexico, we made our way south slightly before heading west through rural New Mexico and across the Arizona border. Oddly enough, we didn’t know we were going to be crossing the well known “Gorge Bridge”, also known as the Rio Grande Bridge. A steel deck arch bridge crosses the Rio Grande Gorge only a mere ten miles northwest of Taos.

Without notice, there she was in all her splendor, views and all in both sides of the bridge as we made our way across slowly. At 565 feet above the Rio Grande,it is the seventh highest bridge in the United States and 82nd highest bridge in the world.

And oh such glorious mountain views!

And now onto our journey, the road heading west from Taos via the Rio Grande Bridge above. And then? Well, we just continued to head west towards the Arizona border, but in a slow and purposeful way, paying attention to all the details each and every step of the way. Enjoy!
