This is a truly remarkable site just outside Taos, New Mexico. The landscape is relatively flat all around the gorge which makes it even more spectacular!! The gorge is 800 feet deep just south of the bridge. Amazing!!

Take the time to stop here and wander the bridge's span back and forth. The views are amazing, and you see the real strength of the Rio Grande.

Did not know that this place existed. Beautiful photography opportunities both of the bridge and the gorge below.

Coming from a flatland state, seeing the mountains, the gorges, driving on the twists & turns, is an amazing experience. I loved you could walk across the bridge as well as along the other viewing areas. Take a good camera if you want spectacular photos!

After a drive across a flat, sagebrush covered valley floor, suddenly you come upon this spectacular gash in the earth. Definitely worth a drive out from Taos if you have come from some other direction. The path from the parking lot on the west end of the bridge is very rough, but there are lockouts and walkways on the bridge... More

A few years ago, on the way home from Durango, CO. following a Durango to Silverton R/T Steam Train ride through the S/W Colorado mountains to our home in Texas, we crossed the U. S. 64 Highway bridge just north of Taos for the first time. I can remember we were pretty much blown away! While it's no Grand Canyon,... More

Worth the trip for the outstanding views. The road up from the visitor center had one stretch that challenged the height-phobic. In retrospect, wish we had pulled off to see views from there.

Long drop to rio grande river from the single span bridge. The surrounding flat plateau makes for a dramatic and unexpected scene. Worth the stop and walk out to the middle of the bridge.
