New Mexico—Rio Grande River Gorge

Photograph of the Rio Grande River Gorge near Taos, New MexicoThe Rio Grande River Gorge is about 800 feet deep (240m) and is nearly 50 miles in length. It is very dramatic when viewed from the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, but, I imagine, it is much more dramatic when viewed from whitewater rapids. The Rio Grande river is part of the National Wild and Scenic River System and has Class II to Class V white water rapids.
