Chimney Rock


Yesterday I spent the day at Ghost Ranch. The ranch was made famous by Georgia O'Keeffe who owned a home nearby. I love being there knowing that she walked around here and painted many of her famous landscapes all around. For more on the history of Ghost Ranch just click here.

Over the next week I will be sharing some more snow hike photos and more from our Ghost Ranch hike. Oh and yes I made it all the way to the top.

The is a wonderful shot Randy. Beautiful southwestern landscape.

Sonya @ Under the Desert Sky said...

That area is so beautiful. No wonder it's inspired so many artists. One of these days, I'd love to go there.

I have always wanted to visit there. Someday, I will. I can see why she was so inspired!

Fantastic landscape, can't wait for more.

I would love to hike where Georgia O'Keefe once walked, just to see if I could recognize any of the scenes that inspired her to put into paintings.

Way to go, on making it to the Top! Looks like we're in for an interesting group of photos!

Kate said...

Great shot of a very special place. You must stay in good shape with all of your hiking!

Ms. Becky said...

wow, I'm impressed, I've never made it to the top. but whenever I've been there it's been very very hot. Ghost Ranch is one of my most favorite spots on earth. I dream of one day being able to get inside her ranch house. maybe if I get on the board of the G.O. museum??? ha! I feel Georgia's presence when I hike there too. It's a very special place and I look forward to seeing more of your photos. this is exciting! happy Monday to you Randy.

Very nice! So different from where I live. What a welcome change. xo

A hike up there would be good for the legs and the lungs, as well as for the eyes and the soul.

DANI said...

Wow, qe suerte de paisajes que teneis, aqui nos tenemos que conformar con pequeñas montañas :)

Un abrazo enorme

JM said...

Fantastic! Erosion is always a great artist.

Lynette said...

The top of the butte or the top of the chimney? Either one looks difficult to me, unless there is a barely sloping trail somewhere that does not get anywhere near the edge--that'd have to be on the butte, of course! You're brave and adventurous and take superb photos!

Nat said...

Wow! That is quite a view... well done making it to the top!

Magpie said...

Love to see snow in the desert. I'm anxious to see the rest of your photos. Ghost Ranch...hmmm...sounds interesting.
