Ghost Ranch - summer home of Georgia O'Keefe . . .
On our way North out of Santa Fe traveling toward Durango we stopped at Ghost Ranch where O'Keefe painted during the summer. I could see where she obtained her inspiration. A beautiful place to paint for sure. A very busy place where you can take numerous workshops throughout the summer.

As we were leaving Ghost Ranch a storm was brewing and we were caught in a hale storm on our way to Pagosa Springs. Nowhere to pull over for cover in an RV, so we had no trudge on thru it. Luckily, no damage incurred.

We passed through many different changes in scenery along the route till we came to Durango and spent the night at a KOA.

Our campground was high atop a ridge with beautiful scenery of the Silverton mountains in the distance. Our first cool night where we had to actually use heat. I highly recommend this place. It's clean and run by some really nice people.
