I am not a big fan of heights, but I was determined to walk on the Rio Grande River Gorge Bridge located about 10 miles northwest of Taos. It is the seventh highest bridge in the United States, and the 82nd highest in the world! As you walk 565 feet above the Rio Grande River, with hands clutched on the railing, you can feel the vibration of trucks passing you on the bridge. The view was so spectacular with all the various ridges and beautiful colors, and I was happy to be stable enough to take photos. Sadly, there are a lot of suicides from this bridge, and there is a button to push for you to talk to someone to get help, should you feel hopeless.
