  • Manistee man volunteers at famed Ghost Ranch in New Mexico
    There are certain places in this country that challenge the inner sanctums of the mind from an artistic, physical, curiosity, scientific, spiritual, educational and historical perspective. However, it is rare to find such a place that presents the opportunity to do all of those things in one location. That is unless you are talking about the unique 21,000-acre Ghost Ranch that is located in Abiquiu, New Mexico.

  • New Mexico’s Ghost Ranch is an inspiring place to unplug
    By Laura Tolley

  • The Best Drive You Have Never Heard of: Santa Fe to Ghost Ranch
    The Suitcase Scholar
    December 3, 2013
    You’d think that after such an amazing day–an epic drive north through the red hills and a three mile hike up to the top of a mesa–I’d be disappointed with the drive home.  You, my friend, would be wrong.  Because I discovered something on the drive back to Santa Fe–the drive is just as beautiful (yet different) in the other direction (see photo to the right, which I took at a random bend in the road).  And with the sun at a different angle, the colors completely change.  Oh–and you have a much better view of the Sangre de Christo Mountains on the way home.

Whenever friends and family come to visit New Mexico, I take them to Ghost Ranch for a hike. I’m particularly proud of this story because my brother, sister, both my dogs and several friends all made it into the magazine this month!
  • Unplug and Renew With a Relaxing Vacation 
    October 2, 2012 AARP The Magazine – article by Jessica Maxwell (page 4 of the web magazine, page 41 of the printed magazine)
    Article intro – “We are weary. We’re tired of the economy. Tired of politics. Tired of texting and cellphones. We could all use a serious time-out in a soft place with gentle pursuits, natural beauty and people who understand the restorative power of quiet. Luckily for us, America has surprisingly affordable retreat centers where you can unwind and come home refreshed and ready for another round of life in the 21st century.”
