West of Taos
We left Taos and was driving along the high plains country when all of a sudden the world dropped away from beneath us. Let me tell you, that gets your attention!
It is the seventh highest bridge in the U.S.
The span is 1280 feet.
There was a rest area right next to it where travelers could stop, get out of their vehicles and take in the jaw dropping view. Vertigo set in.
Finally I relaxed and enjoyed the scene.
This was unexpected and there were several of these stationed at various points.
I did some research and learned there is an average of 2 suicides off the bridge each year.
Not me! I'd be too scared to jump.
