“It’s my private mountain. It belongs to me. God told me if I painted it enough, I could have it.”
–Georgia O’Keeffe about the Pedernal Mountain

To get to know Georgia O’Keeffe, the author of One Hundred Flowers and world-famous painter, the best places to visit are the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum in Santa Fe and Ghost Ranch in Abiquiu. The shops at both offer many beautiful and practical items, including gift books and edible delights.

By visiting both places, you can see the nature that inspired the artist and examples of her striking paintings. Remember to pick up your prickly pear goodies at the Ghost Ranch gift shop. Our favorite was the Prickly Pear Crunch, which satisfied our munchies all the way to the Colorado Author Adventures Trail.

The Georgia O’Keefe Museum and Ghost Ranch are our New Mexico Trail’s fifth and sixth stops!
