A friend and I took a horseback riding trip. I had hoped to do the sunset tour, but it was not offered on the day we were able to be there. However, the tour we went on was great! There ended up just being me and my friend on the tour. We rode out around where Georgia O'Keefe lived and... More

Ghost Ranch is a place where Georgia O'Keefe maintained one of her houses while living in New Mexico. It is located about an hour from Santa Fe, so getting there is not too bad. The property is HUGE (with the background of stunning mountains and rock structures), and you can actually stay there for a night (unless you are participating... More

Weeklong retreat with Unitarian group. Great lectures, ground, facilities. Pluses....landscape, labyrinth, campground, views of changing sky and stars. Minuses: welcome staff were nicknamed Surly 1 and Surly 2. Docents were great however. Food was not bad for cafeteria food but could use improvement. Loved the cherry tomatoes probably grown on the ranch. Be sure to do Georgia O'Keefe tour of... More

We took a horseback ride out on the Ghost Ranch to see the Georgia O'Keeffe's home in the desert. Beautiful scenery and vistas that Ms. O'Keeffe painted. Locations that she painted from include her front and back yard, top of her house and shed as well as tucked away areas on the ranch. One of our guides is the grandson... More

We hiked to Chimney Rock on the trail in early June 2015. Was not busy at all, but had really pretty views! We would have liked to try something a little more challenging but it was just beautiful and definitely worth the time!

We camped, toured the paleontology and archaeology exhibits, and hiked in the place that inspired many artists, including Georgia O'Keefe.

History, mystery, and most of all spectacular views. We see why Georgia O'Keeffe chose this for her home and stayed so long. We took a brief history tour and wished we could have stayed for a night or two.

I was excited to visit the Ghost Ranch because I am a fan of Georgia O'Keefe, but discovered that the Ghost Ranch offers much more. We took the paleontology tour and spoke with Alex the Paleontologist about the fossils and bones that have been discovered on the ranch. Then we took the Georgia O'Keefe tour and was able to visit...

Toured with Great Southwest Adventures. Monique & Alex were excellent tour guides with knowledge of the area's history, geology and ecology. A fun day with many opportunities for photos and walking. Capped by a picnic lunch with goodies from Trader Joes.
