Tag Archives: Abiquiú New Mexico


Cowboys & Aliens finally made it into the VCR tonight. While not great cinema, it has a fair amount of action and features a number of my favorite actors – Adam Beach and Daniel Craig among them. Sam Rockwell appears in a very different role from others he has played.

But the main attraction of the film remains the place. The filming took place in Abiquiu – near Ghost Ranch. Many places I recognized. Pedernal looms in the background of the opening scene. Others seemed familiar. Fortunately Eric responded to my texts and helped me identify some of the locale.

Several things follow from watching the film:

  • I am more than ready to return to Northern New Mexico and the ranch – it draws me.
  • Places around Ghost Ranch remain for me to see and experience.
  • I need to finish my Ghost Ranch People alphabet.

X, Y, and Z offer challenges. I may have to stretch. But I need to finish. Perhaps tonight. Maybe even before time changes.

See you along the Trail.

A is for Arrival

The second Ghost Ranch alphabet begins.
What better place to begin than when one arrives at the ranch:
at that time, one checks in.

The main check occurs outside the office.

For the 2010 Peacemaking Conference,
participants confirmed their presence
at the Ghost House.

25 August 2010

Two differences between this and the previous alphabet:
the pictures will include people
the pictures may not appear as often as daily.
