Rio Grande Gorge

The Rio Grande Gorge, near Taos, New Mexico, is spectacular. It’s spanned by a delicate steel arch of a bridge that you can walk across. There are even “balconies” that jut out over the drop. You can stand perched alone on one of these places, heart in mouth from vertigo, and know you are absolutely safe.

A few days ago I had the grace and good fortune to spend an hour or so photographing the gorge (and bridge) right around sunset. If you are ever in the Taos area, you should make a point of driving the couple of miles to visit this place.
