We drove out to view the canyon and it was absolutely stunning and I high recommend taking the trip. The bridge spanning the canyon is there for those who are brave enough.

There were vendors out selling jewelry. We went to Santa Fe the next day and their prices were way higher. We all bought good jewelry and love it. I would go back. The canyon is beautiful, you can walk out on a wide sidewalk for a better view. Gorgeous and worth the drive.

About a 30 minute ride from RR to Questa. Passing an old mine and chasing a stream almost the entire drive.
