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.

We recently took a horseback riding trip through Ghost Ranch that showed the various spots where Georgia O'Keeffe painted. It was a fun hour. The landscape is beautiful and it was a great way to see the sights. The company managing the horses were great, the horses were great - all in all a great excursion. We also learned that... More

We had the most wonderful experience yesterday. One that will remain in our memory for years to come. Six of us, all beginners, met Daniel our expert trail guide for a great experience. First, he showed us all the basics of riding. Next he introduced each of us to our horses that had been specially selected for our experience level... More

I just returned from the Wisdom Sharing Workshop and Retreat. The staff is outstanding and much effort was put into this opportunity. The cabins are basic, they meet your needs and so much time is spent with the classes, hikes, lectures, and dining that very little time is spent in the room. A new chef was hired 2 months ago...
