Took the high road from Santa Fe to Taos and returned on the low road. I think this gets a bad rap. The views are spectacular and the teenagers in the family enjoyed this route better than the high road. Definitely take this route either up or back.

Driving through the gorge is spendid with the views of the Rio Grande. Near Taos at one of the passes, one can look down on the gorge as it winds northely toward the bridge on US64 and beyond.. There is a good visitor station in the gorge, just off the highway as well as a couple of wineries and stables.

We spent the night in Taos on our drive from Colorado. Then drove to Santa Fe the next day. It made for relaxing drives both days! Along the way we did the Vista Verde hike in Orilla Verde and I would not recommend hiking there in February. It was SO SO SO muddy. We saw one snake pictograph and zero bighorn sheep. My Fat Baby boots had to be resurrected by an incredible shoe repair place in Santa Fe as they were nearly sucked off repeatedly by the clay mud. And my vest had to go to the dry cleaners in Santa Fe to get all the stickers off. The scenery was spectacular tho. And the drive itself was very enjoyable.

I never tire of the drive from Santa Fe to Taos. We recently drove this way on our way to Colorado. As usual, the drive to Taos was wonderful. Beginning in Santa Fe with the pinon/juniper covered hills. Then transitioning to the orange bluffs of Pojaque and high desert at Espanola. From Espanola onward, the road hugs the Rio Grande and goes into the canyon. The canyon walls with their dark volcanic rock rise on either side with the Rio Grande in the middle. Often there are houses and small communities along the way. It goes that way until the road slowly winds away from the river and up onto the mesa above. It’s only there that the Rio Grande Gorge is visible. A crack in the earth. Both sides level plains. Then there in the midst of the mesa is the rift. As if a piece of bread has been torn apart. Almost hard to believe. And the full extent of the Rio Grande Gorge isn’t apparent until walking over the bridge which we did later. Always a treat to drive to Taos
