A great "cooked to order" breakfast here at the hotel, then Ricardo and I were off to the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge.  This is always the place I most appreciate visiting.  An engineering and natural marvel, this bridge spans a huge and beautiful gorge some 565 feet deep.  You can see the river winding it's way south for miles in this dramatic gorge, cutting it's way through the mountains,

The granite walled cliffs are home to numerous herds of Pronghorn Antelope, all of seem to have the ability to climb theses sheer cliffs.  A mile or two north of the gorge you arrive at a small village of Earthship Biotecture homes.  Amazing structures, with their own beauty, each is built totally out of recycled materials, mostly beer cans and wine bottles.


Tonight Ricardo is attending a Native American dance recital and I will relax with a book.  Tomorrow we are going to ride the mountain roads surrounding Taos.
