Rio Grande Gorge Bridge

I’m not usually afraid of heights but, wow, the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge is really high. It is 650 feet up and the 5th tallest bridge in the US and when youstand on the observation platforms that jut off the bridge you can feel every rumble of the trucks going by.
The first day of the roadtrip was shadowed by rain (and today will be as well, and the next day), but in the breaks between the storm there were stunning sights like this bridge, walking around the ruins at Bandelier, the High Road to Taos, and a couple hundred miles of beautiful US64 through northern New Mexico..
