For those interested in DH Lawrence, this is a must see. Folks with an interest in local history would also appreciated it. What lives these folks led back then! It is a long dirt road, but easily driven and the scenery is terrific. We went from here to the La Fonda Hotel to see DHL's 9 scandalous paintings. Made for... More

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

The ranch is only open Thursday, Friday, & Saturday.... so we had to wait a couple of days to plan our trip to the ranch. It was a few miles North of Taos on Hwy 522 and the road to the ranch was an improved dirt road.... the 7 mile trip on the dirt road seemed like forever (going 10... More
