One Of The Highest Bridges In The Whole Country Is Right Here In New Mexico
New Mexico is a land of extremes. This state is home to some exceptionally dry deserts, lush forests, blazing hot chiles, and the oldest locations in the country. Did you know it is also home to one of the country’s highest bridges as well?
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
The bridge is open to the public daily and parking is available on the western side of the bridge. For details about the Rio Grande Gorge, you can visit the Bureau of Land Management website.
