It is a tiny bit out of town, but if you drove all the way up to Taos, a 10 minute drive is totally worth it.

We stopped at the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge on our way from Taos to Ojo Caliente. It is worth the stop. The gorge plunges down very far and with the mountain backdrop you feel that you have stopped at a dramatic location.

Wow, what a view. Not for the faint of heart. You are walking along the edge of a highway with cars zipping by and looking way down into the Rio Grande. I mean way down. We actually were there while it was snowing and got some really great pictures. I will say that if it was a long drive to go see, I might have been disappointed as after you look a few minutes, not much more to do than visit the rest stop restrooms.

Great view, just outside of Taos. Worth the short drive. Nice little rest area, but the best views are from the bridge itself

This is one of the locations they used in Transformers 2 movie, pretty high bridge over a canyon and river. Cool view.

Roadside vendors peddling all sorts of stuff too, if you're into that.
