The landscape of Ghost Ranch in northern New Mexico-made famous by artist Georgia O'Keeffe-encompasses 21,000 acres of towering rock walls, vivid colors and vast skies. Within this setting guests enjoy extensive course offerings along with O'Keeffe Landscape Tours by bus, horseback trail ride or walking. In addition we offer Archaeology and Paleontology Tours, Hiking trails, Massage Therapy and kayaking on Abiquiu Lake.
The Florence Hawley Ellis Museum of Anthropology exhibits display ancient artifacts from the Chama Valley's Paleo Indian culture, 10,000 years ago through ancestral Puebloan times and up to modern Pueblos and Athapaskans.
The Ruth Hall Museum of Paleontology at Ghost Ranch commemorates the site of one of the best known paleontological digs in the Northern Hemisphere. Paleontologists with international reputations have been attracted to the ranch since Edwin Colbert's discovery of the Coelophysis in 1947. The Coelophysis Dinosaur Quarry is a National Natural Landmark and the Ghost Ranch dinosaur, the Coelophysis, is New Mexico's State Fossil.
