my wife adores and admires Georgia O'Keeffe for her art and life. me, I can't get too excited. however, this place will impress you. first, our guide Karen was supremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic. she is a naturalist and will tell you fascinating facts about the plants and geology along your hiking tour. but she also can show you the exact spots where GOK painted some of her most famous pieces -- and Karen's obvious excitement about discovering these places makes it all the more interesting. our tour was more than the 90-minute allotment and that was fine with us. it was a sunny, though chilly morning. the drive from Santa Fe takes you through gorgeous territory -- once you leave the slums north of the city. go slow on the road to the center because it is not paved. two small museums are near the center, one for paleontology and the other anthropology. neither has an extensive display,but enough for a fifteen-minute visit each. it is an eighty-minute drive from Santa Fe on a good highway, including the two-lane route the final thirty miles or so. plenty of places to stop along the way to take photos. New Mexico is a distinctive state with an amazing variety of landscapes.
