Georgia on My Mind: Georgia O'keeffe and Ghost Ranch Country Tour

In addition to visits to the O'keeffe Museum, the Welcome Center and painting sites, we will be driving through the incredible Piedra Lumbre basin (or Valley of the Shining Stone) which stretches from Abiquiu to Chama along the Chama River. From there we will visit Ghost Ranch, a dramatic 21, 000-acre of New Mexican landscape, where the reclusive American artist Georgia O'Keeffe led a solitary life immersed in nature and art. O'Keeffe fell in love with the sculpted landscape of rivers, cliffs and buttes in an expanse of earthen formations which according to pueblo peoples are alive and imbued with spirits of the past. Ghost Ranch is also known for a remarkable concentration of fossils, most notably that of the theropod dinosaur Coelophysis, of which it has been estimated that nearly a thousand individuals have been preserved in a quarry at Ghost Ranch. By touring the formations, the Chama River Valley and Ghost Ranch we understand the love she felt for the ancient, sacred place.

Perfect spot to stretch our legs and see a larger than life historic monument. Creepy tail of the markings. Logged a geocache! Kids had fun hearing their echo.

Yes, it really does echo. From the parking area (fee $2), walk up a path towards the cliff and yell to your heart's content.

Great stop. Only 2 parking fee. Nice views & an excellent stop with small children or older adults who prefer an easy, paved trail.

Located among the sandstone cliffs of New Mexico in Georgia O'Keeffe Country, the Echo Amphitheater is now known for its unique echoing auditory properties, but also supposedly carries the stains of wild west killings. According to the legends, the high curved sandstone cliff
