Chimney Rock was a great climb with the treat of incredible views at the top. Hiking this trail was our goal and we did not visit the museums, so our rating is strictly on the great trail. Although the Visitors Center says 2-3 hours for the 3 mile out and back, we were able to do it in 1 hour... More

We took the georgia o'keeffe landscape tour for the second time and it was just as exciting and beautiful as the first! Bus tour for us where a wonderful guide takes you to several spots where you recognize the artist work and walk in the same area she did. For more adventurous folks you can take this tour on horseback!... More

It is no wonder that Georgia O'Keefe chose this place as an inspiration. The views are nothing short of breath taking.

The tour also showed where she lived as well as much of the scenery of Northern New Mexico. The hills and mountains of Northern New Mexico are... More

We had a very enjoyable time on the landscape tour. Our guide Wendy was very knowledgable and answered all our questions very well. The landscape was beautiful and the tour tied the surroundings and O'Keefe's paintings together very well. Recommended.
