Day trip to Taos

We headed north to Taos to poke around in a few tourist trap shops and eat lunch. Traffic was kind of bad in the tourist area, and we had left 63 degrees in Angel Fire for 91 degrees in the desert town of Taos. Not feeling like browsing knock knack shops, we grabbed a bite at Orlando's, and made a short drive to see the Rio Grand Gorge Bridge.

This bridge was built on 1966, and is the 5th highest in the US--650 feet above the river. Driving up to it, you can't tell there is even a canyon there. But on the bridge, it's amazing.

The bridge has been in several movies, and also has been the site of several suicides. Bill and I were thinking bungie jumping would be cool here.
