Georgia O’Keeffe’s beloved Pedernal looms on the horizon at Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center in northern New Mexico.

ABIQUIU, N.M. – It’s called the Cerro Pedernal: a dark, towering mesa that keeps silent watch over a secluded slice of northern New Mexico. And it was my constant companion on a recent trip there for an inspiring week of hiking, yoga and writing at the fabled Ghost Ranch. Home to artist Georgia O’Keeffe’s beloved village of Abiquiu, the winding Chama River, shimmering cottonwoods and red-rock mountains, the region has an otherworldly feel and many consider it sacred territory. A native New Mexican, I generally have chosen Santa Fe, Taos or the comfort of my hometown of Albuquerque for my trips back, but a couple of years ago, I drove over to Abiquiu on a whim, falling in love with the land and the idea of staying at Ghost Ranch.
