It was amazing visit. Very beautiful view. If you have time, you can take walk around. Can stay longer and relax. We loved to be there and want to be back for little longer.

This is an outstanding walking tour of restricted areas of Ghost Ranch. The tour highlights locations where O'Keeffe visualized and created some of her most famous landscape paintings.
