Ice Cream Bus

Rio Grand Gorge Bridge, Taos, New Mexico

I love wandering around new places, as you never know what you will find. On our trip to New Mexico, I was really excited to spend some time in this state that I had never visited. We stayed in Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and Taos, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. One day, we decided to check out the Rio Grande Bridge outside of Taos. I had always heard of the Rio Grand River and thought it might be interesting to see it. The landscape in the area is extremely flat, so the bridge is hard to see in the distance. Once there, there are dirt parking lots at either end where you can get out and walk along the gorge. 

One of the things that I wasn't expecting was this vivid ice cream bus sitting in the lot. It was so unexpected that I had to take a couple of shots of it. It wasn't open when we were there, but a quick Google search found it. Its official name is Rachel's Ice Cream Bus, and it is a mobile food "bus" that can be found in many locations around Taos.
