This view never disappoints, we go there during every visit to Los Alamos! The Rio Grande meanders through the valley with Black Mesa in the distance.

This is a hidden sight - out of White Rock, NM. You can see the valley below - including the Rio Grande River and the Rio Grande Gorge and all around - so pretty and "massive" - the great land of New Mexico.
