In the 1980s for several years I spent a week each year at Ghost Ranch in a former wranglers' bunk house, had breakfast, lunch & dinner in the ranch mess hall, went outdoors landscape painting at the side of Georgia O'Keefe's house, saw birds, and went to the town of Abiquiu nearby on a mesa where I saw cowboys taking...

My visit to the Ghost Ranch was very informative with the knowledge I have added to my personal log book about Georgia O'Keeffe, her life and the history of her time spent in the Abiquiu area of New Mexico. Also, I was fortunate to spend time with Four of the best Wranglers at the stables on the Ghost Ranch property.... More

I love the history of Ghost Ranch. There are several trails, horseback riding, a neat library, museums, and a labyrinth. The property vibe is very laid back and not commercial. It reminds me of the girl scout camp I attended as a child but geared toward adults. A nice way to spend the day while in Abiquiu.

My husband and I first visited Ghost Ranch in 2008 and were immediately impressed with the landscape that inspired Georgia O’Keeffe. Ghost Ranch is about an hour south of Chama, NM and about an hour west of Taos. In 2008 we enjoyed a picnic lunch under the shade of the cottonwood trees looking out at the stunning red rock mesas.... More

The opportunity to see where Georgia O'Keefe lived and painted was a wonderful privilege. It is wise to reserve tours in advance. The O'Keefe Landscape Tour is really special. The docents are highly dedicated and true educators. The paleontology tour is another must and try to at least have him show you around the little museum. It has some fossils... More

I visited with a friend in early November and took the Georgia O'Keefe Landscape Tour. The landscape around Ghost Ranch is stunning. It is one of the most interesting and beautiful places I've visited. The tour guides were very knowledgeable about O'Keefe and about the history of Ghost Ranch. It was really fascinating to see a reproduction of an O'Keefe... More

If you want to get a flavor of the beauty of New Mexico, make the trek to Ghost Ranch. Whether you go for just a day (it's an easy drive from Albuquerque or Santa Fe) or stay for a week, you'll see the best vistas in the state. The accomodations are clean, if a little rustic. You can also camp... More

We took the bus tour which was 1 1/2 hours long in a covered bus with very little bouncing. History of the land and its residents were shared. Many stops along the way were allowed for photos. Bring binoculars and a good zoom lense.
