Enjoyed a ride around Ghost Ranch, focusing on areas that O'Keefe painted. Terrific wrangler, Sunny Khalsa. We were first shown photos of O'Keefe paintings and photos of the corresponding natural scene, which we witnessed.

I stayed in a room so I don't have first hand knowledge of the RV area. I believe it is though as I recall seeing a few pets there.
