I went as a school group with 34 other kids and 4 teachers. The staff at Ghost Ranch were nothing but nice and helped us. Being a big group we felt sort of bad because we were a little hard to handle. But overall the horseback riding was fun and the hike was beautiful.

This was a wonderful experience-the color of the rocks, the light on the surrounding mountains, the rich history of the place and the hiking was just amazing. Anyone who loves Georgia O'Keefe and those rugged individualists who settled here must see this place!
