The night before we had driven over the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge. With a quick search on the mountain bike trail "app" we discovered there was a trail that followed along the rim. The day was spent exploring the gorge and taking in the views; the depth of the Rio Grande was breathtaking. A quick ride turned into a full day, covering nearly 25 miles. A solid day on the trail, returning to The Betty was a welcome sight.
Refreshed from the springs, we were prepared for the next leg of the trip. Angel Fire Bike Park was opening in two days. Only about 25 miles and one pass away, The Betty was poised for a long weekend of gravity riding and bumping elbows with some other "adventure rigs".
