It's a beautiful location and I recommend staying overnight. We thoroughly enjoyed the Georgia O'Keefe landscape tour. But the Archaeology and Paleontology museums are also excellent! They are remarkably comprehensive and highly enjoyable!

I wish I could've stayed longer. One afternoon isn't enough. It snowed the day prior and was just an awe-inspiring place. I don't like this landscape as much as ocean and mountain, but this place could change my mind.

This is a great place to go, stay, see. First of all if you stay it is minimally comfortable. Think church camp run by the Presbyterian church, because that's what it is. If you can get past the hard beds, no shampoos in little bottles,...More
