I drove it both ways in my MH. If you are confident and careful in your driving, it is quite thrilling to look down.
It is a good road, just that some are not used to hair-pins and such.
Many many times in the toad though.

Wineries - One of favorites things to do. Hopefully they have daily tours. We have toured wineries from Napa to NY and back down thru the eastern states.
In our little town of Vero Beach, Fl, we don't have any wineries nearby but we do attend the various wine tasting events. Afterwards, we have dinner at one of the nearby restaurants. Makes for great evening with friends.

I think you mean the Rio Grande Gorge Bridge east of Taos? Royal Gorge is in Colorado.

Have to mention Page AZ and Glen Canyon dam. Take the blue boat tour down the Colorado river below the dam to Lees Ferry No white water, 3 hrs on the river with 1000' red sandstone cliffs all around. petroglyphs, animals etc GREAT morning trip. Boat down, bus back. Not to be missed Don't do the afternoon trip in the summer way too hot or the all day trip way too long. I used to guide this trip. Go to the Page Airport and do a scenic flight over the lake. Way better than Monument Valley! I used to fly these tours :-) Ask about a hike (if you can) to see the "Wave" and "Hodos". There is also a tour of the dam. If you fish, no limit stripped bass fishing in the lake. Some boats get 100 a day. Best bass fishing (small and largemouth) in the state. You can rent a houseboat for a few days on the lake. Need advance reservations(lake is 175 miles long. Make sure you do the short 1 mile hike to the "horseshoe bend" above the river that is 2 miles south of Wallyworld (Walmart) in Page. Don't get right on the edge of the 900' cliff overlooking the river. Stand back a few feet. A German guy did that last year and did the 900" waltz all the way down to the river. Page has a balloon fest in the fall also. Best month there is usually October. Weather is nice and the crowds are gone.

I stand corrected.
