Kitchen Mesa

Here it is!!!!  The very last of my photos from my New Mexico trip in March.  Ah sigh.... god that was a blast.

The last full day in New Mexico, we hiked Kitchen Mesa in Ghost Ranch.  It was AH-MAZING!  Seriously, breathtaking.  Ever seen a Georgia O'Keeffe landscape painting???  Kitchen Mesa was the inspiration behind them.  She lived right outside of Ghost Ranch, and frequented Kitchen Mesa.  It's a pretty short hike, but it's definitely the most beautiful landscape I've ever seen.  These rocks are about a hundred different colors, and the sky is a crazy pretty blue.

This was quite the epic day for me, as a lady afraid of heights.  I literally had some life frightening scares with the climb up the mesa.  Ropes and jagged rocks!!!  Oh my.......  I had to belt out some "I'm Every Woman" when I got to the top.  ha! 

Totally worth it in the end though.  



  1. The pictures are so beautiful. And the landscape of New Mexico is totally ah-some.

  2. Wow, breathtaking! I've never been to New Mexico but need to visit there one of these days. I never realized that about Georgia O'Keefe - makes me what to hike Ghost Ranch even more :-)

  3. Hi! New follower and blogger here=) New Mexico is gorgeous, right? As a High Desert native, I have to admit that the desert holds a certain charm. Glad you had an amazing trip!

  4. Wow! You really caught the beauty of that place. So important to get out there and conquer things every once in a while.
    Way to go!!!
