Fodor's Review

It's a dizzying experience to see the Rio Grande 650 feet underfoot, where it flows at the bottom of an immense, steep rock canyon. In summer the reddish rocks dotted with green scrub contrast brilliantly with the blue sky, where you might see a hawk lazily floating in circles. The bridge is the second-highest suspension bridge in the country. Hold on to your camera and eyeglasses when looking down. Shortly after daybreak, hot-air balloons fly above and even inside the

gorge. There's a campground with picnic shelters and basic restrooms on the west side of the bridge.
