Take the movie location or Georgia O'Keeffe tours if you can. This is a not to be missed natural wonder. The small museums are interesting.

I was attending a conference at Ghost Ranch and it was outstanding. This is a "thin place" -- a place where the secular and sacred are separated by tissue paper. WONDERFUL!

While visiting New Mexico I wanted to do a nature hike to see up close some of the beautiful scenery. Ghost Ranch was about 20 minutes from where we were staying in Abiquiu and they have about 8 or 9 hiking trails on the property. Once there we had to check in at the Welcome Center and there was a...

While there were many people coming here for retreats, we came here to check out the trails. The staff was friendly, and there is a small snack bar as well, plus an area with tables and Internet ( not sure if that was for Retreat guests only). They are serious about safety on trails, so they had us sign in... More

Great scenery, the opportunity to take a variety of classes but more importantly, a chance to bond with family and new friends in a special setting. Nothing... More

I visited the Ghost Ranch twice this summer (so far). Once was during the hours when the attraction was open and the next was before dawn on another day. My goal was to photograph the views she painted. I studied books on the paintings she did during her stay at Ghost Ranch and attempted to locate the position on the... More

We did the Okeefe trail ride and it was excellent. Daniel was our very knowledgeable guide. We learned so much on the 90 minute trail ride. He was great with our daughter (10). Both kids (10 and 14) loved the excursion as did we. The grounds are well maintained with two small but good museums on site covering the history... More
