Ideas Around the Region
OJO CALIENTE MINERAL SPRINGS RESORT & SPA
After an exhilarating day on the slopes, come soak your bones in the steamy, soothing hot springs of Ojo Caliente. Ojo is only 37 miles south of Taos. Take Rt. 64 past the Gorge Bridge and onto the newly paved Rim Road to US 285.
Our people have a detailed oral history which is not divulged due to religious privacy. Archaeologists say that ancestors of the Taos Indians lived in this valley long before Columbus discovered America and hundreds of years before Europe emerged from the Dark Ages.
Rio Grande Bridge
Travel west on US Hwy 64 to reach the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge, the second highest bridge on the U.S. Highway System. The bridge is a three-span steel continuous-deck-truss structure with a concrete-filled steel-grid deck. It was called the “bridge to nowhere” while it was being built because the funding did not exist to continue the road on the other side.
Art & Cultural Tours
Explore the people, food, cultures, and vastness of New Mexico and the Four Corners area. All of these experiences have culminated to create a one of a kind company that offers you the adventures we've sought over the years and turning the unpackaged, raw and sometimes gritty into tangible, accessible, and fun!
