    You may hold on tightly to your kids, your hat, your eyeglasses, or your camera, but almost everybody will hold their breath. It is a long ways down there! It takes your breath away just to look. The terrain on either side of the gorge is flat for quite a distance, so the ruggedness and depth of this deep canyon is an incredible contrast.

    When on the bridge, look out for low-flying planes. The Taos Airport is nearby and pilots occassionally dare each other to fly under the bridge. Hot air balloons also fly above and in the Gorge from time to time at daybreak.

    The Rio Grande Gorge lies 650 feet below the bridge, which is the second-highest expansion bridge in the USA. Hold on to your camera and eyeglasses when looking down!
