The Remote Natural Amphitheater In New Mexico You’ll Probably Have All To Yourself

The American Southwest is no stranger to remote and beautiful destinations, and New Mexico is no exception. In fact, the landscapes found near Abiquiu — located midway between Albuquerque and the Colorado border — inspired the famous artist Georgia O’Keeffe, who split her time between Ghost Ranch and New York. But nestled off Highway 84 in northern New Mexico, 17 miles west of Abiquiú and four miles up the road from Ghost Ranch, is a unique geological feature that is, quite simply, one of the most striking places we’ve ever seen.
