“Ghost Ranch - Northern New Mexico”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

An absolutely beautiful part of America in Northern New Mexico. Located on the road between Chama and Santa Fe.

My wife and I toured through the Ranch as we were winding our way back home from the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic train out of Chama.

The colors and scenery are stunning. If one is so inclined there are facilities to stay as well.

The Ghost Ranch is the home of Georgia O'Keefe who is well known for her artistry in capturing the beauty of this area.

“It's like a mini-Sedona without the crowds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you have never been to Sedona and want to get a taste of it, I highly recommend Ghost Ranch. The three hikes are all uniquely different and a great way to spend the day.

“Amazing Scenery!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

This is some of the most spectacular scenery in the West. Even if you don't take a tour, just driving through the area is fabulous.

I took the Georgia O'Keefe tour. It took us out into the area on a bus and looked at the specific views that she painted. Very interesting.

Highly recommend.

“Horseback Ride at Ghost Ranch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2012

Wonderful opportunity to see the exact locations of Georgia O'Keeffe paintings. However, Ghost Ranch seemed a little disorganized.
