While we were in New Mexico, we decided to investigate the Rio Grande Gorge bridge. The scenery around Taos, NM is filled with sagebrush. Miles and miles of sagebrush. The landscape is flat with–have I said it–sagebrush. But outside of Taos is a river that goes from north to south called the Rio Grande River. About 20 miles south of Taos you can drive your car next to the river and play in it if you like. It’s quite different just outside Taos. In fact you drive thru the sagebrush a few miles west of Taos on highway 64 and see an interesting thing. You can’t see it until you are on it. It’s the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge over the Rio Grande that towers 564 feet above the water level.
What’s also interesting is that the canyon is filled with all kinds of wildlife, especially big horn sheep. You can see one in the middle of the next picture.
In the midst of sagebrush country, you would never think that such a beautiful canyon and unique sheep would be visible. It’s Gods creation that He has allowed us to enjoy.
On this journey, when we open our eyes and look around, new and different aspects of scenery can be seen. Sagebrush and canyons and sheep.
