are the views around the Ghost Ranch, about 60 miles northwest of Santa Fe. This area of rocky vistas and broad valleys attracted many noted artists and literati, Georgia O’Keefe among them. And I can see why. Here is just a glimpse of what I saw today, to be continued tomorrow.
These banded rocks date to the Triassic period of geologic time, and are chock full of fossils. Paleontological excavations have unearthed a diverse fauna. More on that later.
