Highway 68, New Mexico: The River, But

Highway 68 between Taos and Española, New Mexico



There are very pretty views of the river on the bend-y Highway 68 between Española and Taos. But, um, did I take any photos of this? Apparently not.

But I have these:

Fortunately, I have these two photos taken from the Rio Grande Gorge Visitor Center on Highway 68 when I was here a few years ago.

Speaking of the Rio Grande Gorge Visitors Center, I was impressed by it last time I came through in November 2008. Not so much this time because staff aren't taking care of it. The spacious veranda that overlooks the river is unkempt with bird droppings on the benches and the picnic table, the floor is unswept, and the beams of the ceilings are rife with spiderwebs. I almost asked for a broom so I could sweep the porch. The insides of the light fixtures in the bathroom were littered with dead insects. Quite a contrast with the sparkling-ness of the Northwest New Mexico Visitor Center.
