The tour of the property of the Ghost Ranch was fabulous. The guide brought Georgia O'Keeffe to life. I better understand her art and appreciate it more.

After you have done all the museums in Santa Fe, do yourself a favor and get out into the country and experience what the artists are really looking at. The O’Keeffe Landscape Tour just happens to be the best tour of them all.

We had a private trail ride with views of the mesas and mountains that inspired Georgia O'Keefe that were absolutely breathtaking! Well worth it!

We drove up here after visiting Georgia O'Keeffe's home in Abiquiu (highly recommended!!!!!). Although she also had a home at Ghost Ranch, it isn't available for visitors. There is a "Georgia O'Keeffe Scenery" tour, however, which is recommended. There is such beautiful scenery everywhere you look!

We just got back from Santa Fe and we spent a great day at Ghost Ranch. We hiked to Chimney Rock in the morning which was a beautiful hike up into the rocks with a great view. In the afternoon, after a box lunch, we went horseback riding out on the trail. Our ride was led by Daniel who was... More

Just happened on the Ghost Ranch when i was exploring northern New Mexico. This is such a amazing area that is stunningly beautiful. Hiking, bird watching and outdoor activities are wonderful, but the Ghost Ranch also has an some of the best arts, crafts, pottery and metal working classes. Just love it here

We stopped by the Ghost Ranch on our way to Santa Fe to hike the chimney rock trail. A nice hike with great scenery. Plan for about 2 hours. This will give you enough time to spend at the top of the Mesa and take lots of pictures. Stop on a clear day and you won't be disappointed. There is... More

They offer a small bus tour of the area.. But to really see her home and the amazing vista.. Ride a horse !! The trail... More

Ghost Ranch is one of our favorite places in Northern New Mexico. It is in a drop-dead gorgeous natural setting, where Georgia O'Keeffe lived and painted, and where little seems to have changed since that era early in the 20th century. The red cliffs, grassy fields and cottonwoods, combined with the impossibly blue skies make it an artist's paradise. It... More

Ghost Ranch is a huge place that has many many themes. One is that it is quiet and peaceful in all its property. The valley is full of wonderful sites and views. As a neighbor, I am also blessed as are those that come for rest and relaxation, classes on many subjects including working with your hands - craving, metal... More
