“As soon as I saw it, that was my country. I’d never seen anything like it before, but it fitted to me exactly. There’s something in the air, it’s just different. The sky is different, the stars are different, the wind is different.” – Georgia O’Keefe
After experiencing Santa Fe and the surrounding area with friends, it’s no wonder why the iconic painter and brilliant colorist was captivated and transformed by New Mexico’s landscape. We felt the true high dessert’s boldness with a dramatic temperature swing – a snowstorm one day followed by mid-seventies sun! This accentuated the land’s many virtues and I enjoyed perusing the culture of Canyon Road’s gallery art walk, Bandelier National Monument’s majesty and the quaint town with my dearest gals.
