Plaza Blanca, Abiquiu, New Mexico


Plaza Blanca, known as The White Place, a magnificent spot made famous by the series of paintings by Georgia O’Keefe is located in the New Mexico Badlands about 20 miles from Ghost Ranch. This place is filled with limestone obelisks and hoodoos gathered together in groups like small cities. As we hiked down, it had an otherworldly feel as we wandered around these unusual formations. It is a hidden gem and it is no wonder it has captivated artists and photographers over the years.

  1. Very nice! I need to visit there when I go out that way in September.

  2. What a wonderful experience you two are having. The photos are just beautiful. You should put a picture book together and submit it to National Geographic.
