When I think of the beauty and the splendor of New Mexico Real Estate I think of a small town about 50 miles north of Santa Fe called Abiquiui.  This little town holds a lot of history and fascination. It has been the setting for movies (Indiana Jones, City Slickers), it has been written about in novels, and, most notably, it was home to famed artist Georgia O'Keeffe from 1949 until her death in 1986. 

O'Keefe's actual home was in nearby Ghost Ranch. It's here, where towering rock walls and vivid colors abound, that O'Keeffe found her inspiration. It's here where red rocks formations stand majestic under endless skies. And it's here where many tales of ghosts and legends of hangings in the Ranch's history originated. 

Ghost Ranch is north of Abiquiui (just past Abiquiui Lake), about 1 hour and 15 minutes from Santa Fe. You must try to make the trip. There is absolutely nothing like a hike in the fall light up on Kitchen Mesa. I included pictures here for you to see, but it doesn't compare to the real thing. It makes me realize why I love living in Santa Fe, and working with Santa Fe Real Estate as much as I do. It is incomparable to any place I have ever lived and it's definitely a different way of living. If you are thinking about buying a home in Santa Fe, don't hesitate to call me.
