Be prepared for dust, dirt, and wind, and to not find an open snack bar or guides. It's about the journey, not the destination. The routes to and from are the most interesting, and what is seen along the way.More

Walking in Georgia O'Keefe's shoes is what Ghost Ranch means to travelers. It's actually a Church retreat center so not like average hotels. The rooms are old and funky, there's no TV (but good enough wi-fi to stream feeds), and meals are cafeteria style with...More

Enjoyed a ride around Ghost Ranch, focusing on areas that O'Keefe painted. Terrific wrangler, Sunny Khalsa. We were first shown photos of O'Keefe paintings and photos of the corresponding natural scene, which we witnessed.

I stayed in a room so I don't have first hand knowledge of the RV area. I believe it is though as I recall seeing a few pets there.
