If you've ever read any D.H. Lawrence, it's worth the hike to the child-like structures that sheltered a literary and artistic visitors who visited Lawrence during his stay north of Taos, NM. Extra treat is reclining on a bench looking up through the same pine branches that his sometime guest, Georgia O'Keeffe painted one of her iconic images of NM.

We so enjoyed this attraction. The artist was truly able to represent the beauty of his surroundings and the great Pueblo people.

You can enter the chapel where his ashes may be interred. You can sit under the same tree that Georgia O'Keefe sat under and painted. You can see the cabins where the women and D.H. lived.

We took a lovely drive about 10 miles north of Taos and then 5 miles on a well-graded dirt road up to the D. H. Lawrence Ranch at the edge of the Sangre de Cristos. It is only open a few days a week, so definitely make sure it's open before you go. The docent who told us the story... More

Well, D H was only in New Mexico for a few months in total so why all the fuss? We found him first in Vence, France, or at least a memorial to him. Seems he was dug up and then cremated so he could be moved back to his wife in Taos. She was having an affair with the Italian... More

Literary people and historians will love this place. There's a long, slow drive up a curvy gravel road; a tiny, tidy house; a hike up a paved switchback path to a final resting place; and a handful of animals eager for human company. And it doesn't take long to see the entire place - you can do the whole thing... More

Good exercise here. It's fun to learn about D.H., Frieda, and Dorothy. See where they lived, sit under the tree that Georgia O'Keefe painted, and dream.

This is am important landmark near Taos. It was given to the University of New Mexico by Lawrence's widow and housed Lawrence Fellows, writers in-residence working on their craft. In recent years, the ranch has become a mecca for Lawrence fans and artists and writers who appreciate what Lawrence's vision for the ranch was: to create an artist utopia in... More
