Description

The glowing rocks of Piedra Lumbre (Spanish, "Shining Rock") in afternoon light. Fall monsoons fill the cobalt blue skies with puffy cumulous and nimbostratus clouds, contrasting with the dramatic shapes and colors of the rock formations.
Georgia O'Keeffe, intrigued by Ghost Ranch owner Arthur Pack's statement that the Piedra Lumbre was "the best place in the world," checked out the ranch. She fell in love with the geography, and soon split her time between living in New York and New Mexico.
