This is said to be the oldest, continuously occupied structure in North America.
Cost is $14 - $16, depending on your age. There are restrooms and even motorhome parking. You are asked not to open any doors as these may be occupied homes. Many of the ground floor rooms are occupied by small shops selling souvenirs and baked goods.
This is a VERY large pueblo!
After visiting Taos, I headed west past my campground to the Rio Grand Gorge. It was quite an experience as you will see by the last couple of slides. In any case, it was worth pulling into the rest area and walking back to the bridge for some views.
This Memorial Day weekend was a motorcycle event of some sort, so there have been a lot of bikers in the area. No where near as bad as it was the time I accidently scheduled a week at Gamble Rogers State Park, north of Daytona Beach during Bike Week where there were 500,000 motorcycles, but a crowd in any case. This is the scene around the Gorge. (I was parked in the official rest area to the left of this photo.)
Time to go home to peace and quiet, don't you think?
