  • Super cool bridge. But when you walk out on it you can feel it moving. Freeky.
  • What a really incredible landmark. It was hard to grasp the full scale of the gorge beyond 'huge.' Definitely not somewhere to go if you aren't good with heights!! The only disappointment was the tourist bazaar West of the bridge where people peddled lots of trinkets and souvenirs although to some this may not detract from the experience.
  • Nice little extra to see when you are in Taos. Careful in the wind and make sure you check out the vendors on the west side of the bridge. They have some great jewelry.
  • Awesome views of the Rio Grande from high above. Took my scout troop up here after we rafted the Rio Grande earlier. There are a lot of vendors on the side of the road by the bridge, something I didn't know or expect--so just a heads up.
  • Beautiful sight to see and great spot to relax and picnic. Grand Canyon is a greater spectacle but you don't want to miss this gorge either
