The Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, near Taos, New Mexico, spans 600 feet across and is 565 feet high. We were lucky enough to be there late in the afternoon, when the shadows were long. The bridge is very pedestrian friendly, and allows for beautiful views down the the river (and often rafters) below.
Yesterday, was near Spring weather perfection in the New River Valley. By mid afternoon, I had worked, worked out, and been at the computer for hours. Thankfully, I finally hit a point where I hopped in the car to go shoot some pictures. We are very lucky here in southwest Virginia, to have several historic covered bridges dotting the countryside. This one, Link’s Farm Covered Bridge, is located in Giles County. It was built in 1912, and its 49′ length spans Sinking Creek. As with so many landscapes and structures here in Virginia, this bridge evokes a different sentiment with each and every season. On this particular Spring day, I found myself very aware of the serenity of the setting. The scenery, along with the sound of the babbling creek, was refreshing to the soul.
