When visiting northern New Mexico don't miss this spot. Nice for walking. It's also near the Georgia O´Keeffe Home and Studio.

Don't miss Plaza Blanca if you have the opportunity to visit Abiquiu. It's free and very easily accessed. It's a few miles off the main highway on County Road 0155, but it feels like you're on another planet. The road does become dirt for a...More

This is the best kept secret in the area. So beautiful, so remote feeling and so inspirational. It feels like you are miles from civilization and there are tons of areas to explore. Amazing!

Plaza Blanca is famous because Georgia O'Keeffe painted here. This place is a little bit off the beaten path.

The painter Georgia O'Keefe loved this, "The White Place", and painted it many times. Movies have also been filmed here, and with good reason. This area is incredible. It is very difficult to find, so I would recommend looking up a GPS address. You will...More

This place is stunning. I never thought that nature can be so beautiful. But sun here is very intense and you need hat, sunscreen and water.

Sure. It's an open space and the car park is not gated. There is a mosque nearby and that requires an appointment, I think. But you can wander around and explore the area.

There are not trails, per se. It's private land and there are worn paths in the area near the parking lot but the rest is a clay wash and rocks. I've been there a couple of times and have seen dog prints, or possibly... More
