Georgia O'keefe Country

Perdernal "is my private mountain," she said frequently. God told me if I painted it often enough I could have it.

This wasn't a planned stop on our trip but when I looked at the map for the next town (we were all getting quite hungry) I saw Ghost Ranch and Abiquiu. This is were Georgia O'Keefe lived and painted in New Mexico. I have always wanted to see it. We never did find the town of Abiquiu. Not sure how we missed it. But we did get to stop at the Ghost Ranch visitors center, and lunch just had to wait.

"When I got to New Mexico, that was mine. As soon as I saw it, that was my country."
