First picture above, the Rio Chama River after it reconstitutes out of Abiquiu Dam heading towards Abiquiu.
The second picture is of Cerro Pedernal Mountain, seen from the lake campground. Georgia O’Keeffe is supposed to have called it “her mountain” because she painted it so much. After her death, her ashes were scattered on top of it.
The third picture is of her former home in Abiquiu. She also had a home on Ghost Ranch a short distance away. She was supposedly not pleased when the owner left the property to the Presbyterian Church, but eventually made peace with the owners.
When I drove into Abiquiu to see Ms. O’Keeffe’s former home, I stopped my truck when I saw a large number of birds I didn’t recognize in some trees. Saw that they were crossing the street to where there was a bird feeder and then returning to the trees which I later found out were on Ms. O’Keeffe’s former property. The birds are evening grosbeaks.
