Lovely landscape tour led by Kate, a personable and informative guide. Grounds are fun to explore, especially the paleontology museum and original buildings.

My family including my 20 year old son and college student and 16 year daughter all thoroughly enjoyed this overview of Georgia O'Keeffe and her life at Ghost Ranch. Our guide was passionate and knowledgable and the scenery breath taking. I highly recommend you take the time to visit and I hope to return someday for a weekend retreat.

Yes, stop and take photos of the landscape and appreciate the serenity of the land where Georgia O'Keefe painted and lived. The actual property name Ghost Ranch is poorly maintained and does not reveal any information about the painter or her life. There is a dinosaur museum, which is really a large room in cabin at the head of the... More

If you love the beautiful mountain scenery north of Santa Fe, New Mexico, or if you enjoy the art of Georgia O'Keeffe, this two hour driving tour is spectacular. At each stop along the way, you actually view the specific places where Georgia O'Keeffe painted and hear about the history, the geology and the landscape. The guides are very knowledgeable... More

This is an easy day trip from Santa Fe and worth 1 1/4 hour drive. Arrive early or after 3:00 to hike in the cooler hours. Unless you want to spend the whole day on a guided tour that starts at 10:00 your visit is self-directed which is probably a good thing. We thought the anthropology and paleontology museums were...

Ghost ranch has it all - starting with the splendid desert views made famous by Georgia O'Keefe. Each time I go there (my mother lives nearby) they seem to add something new and interesting, from a kitchen garden where guests can help the staff tend the garden to wonderful walks and hikes around the area. No matter what you like... More

We spent a day at Ghost Ranch and took the History Tour. It is a beautiful place and easy to see why it was one of Georgia O'Keeffe's favorite subjects. The part of the "Ranch" we toured is owned by the Presbyterian Church and you can tour this part for a "donation". The O'Keeffe part of the Ranch is a... More

My guide's name was Bri, a local cowgirl with who's knowledge of the ranch and land was only surpassed by her knowledge of the horses we rode through the red dirt terrain. An oasis of color amidst a vast high desert landscape. At any moment, I could turn and see majestic rock formation cliffs highlighted and shadowed by the early... More
