When my Mom and I went on our first Mother-Daughter trip to Santa Fe, we also spent time in Taos. On the way to Taos, we crossed the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. It is the seventh highest bridge in the United States. With both of us having a fear of heights, this crossing was a bit intimidating.
It was a beautiful day and we spent about 20 minutes taking in the river and bridge before crossing. We also stopped to use the restroom at the Rio Grande Gorge Rest Area. Pro tip: the bathrooms at the rest area were closed and didn’t look like they had been open for quite some time.
Another Pro Tip: Earthship Biotecture is only two miles before the bridge. I wish we’d had time to stop there, but we were running out of daylight and were trying to get to our house rental in Taos. They have a shop and education center. Next time I’m in the area, I’m going to stay in one of the Earthship rental properties!
Have you ever crossed the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge or stayed overnight at Earthship Biotecture?
May your journey be your muse,
