Rio Grande Gorge – My Shot of the Day – August 14, 2012

Rio Grande Gorge

Rio Grande Gorge

Our big river begins way up in the wilderness peaks of Colorado, passing nearly 2,000 miles to the Gulf of Mexico where it limps, putrid and polluted to the sea.

Here in Taos, the river wends through the chasms of the Rio Grande Gorge on its way south.  At it’s deepest, here where I shot this picture, the river is 800-feet below the surrounding plateau.

In 1968, Congress designated a nice stretch of the river as Wild and Scenic, permanently protecting it for wildlife, fishing, hiking, whitewater rafting and other non-destructive activities. It is managed by the Bureau of Land Management.

For the kids and I, it is one of our most favorite playgrounds.

I captured this image about 30 yards down from where I took these shots last week.
