This is a relaxing mild to moderate daytime walk on a walking bridge over the Rio Grande river in Albuquerque New Mexico. From high above the river, you will see breathtaking vistas of the tree lined banks of the river, the Sandia mountains, and the city. Depending on the time of year and time of day, you may see the gorgeous colors of autumn in New Mexico, or unique views of hot air balloons. There are many viewing points to stop and enjoy the panorama, and take photographs. The experience will take approximately 2 hours--45 minutes down, a half an hour rest at the bottom, and 45 minutes back up. Water and limited snacks are included. I will explain some of the history of Albuquerque and some of the importance of the Rio Grande to the peoples who have inhabited this region throughout history. Once the end of the walking trail has been reached, there will be approximately 30 minutes to have a snack, and to wander the banks of the Rio Grande, until we head back up the bridge. The bridge is sloped downward on the way there, and has a moderate incline on the way back, so that should be taken into consideration for travelers with health concerns. This is generally an easy walk for children and seniors who are of good health. Sunscreen and sun protection is a must, particularly in summer months.
I am a mother, an artist, an actress, and a lover of life and unique experiences. I love people and love to focus my time on getting to know people as individuals and as a part of a whole. I am a former flight attendant, so I know the ins and outs of travel, and I know how valuable it can be to have the knowledge of someone familiar with the area you wish to visit. I like to focus on the history of the peoples of an area and learn about their culture. I love New Mexico and all it has to offer travelers. There is a rich heritage and distinct experience awaiting all who come to visit, and I would love to be the one to help people find it. Full profile ⋅ Leave a Review
