In 1929, Georgia O'Keeffe took a trip to Taos, New Mexico with a friend and fell in love with the landscape and color of the desert. She often called it "the faraway."
This was the beginning of many summer trips to Santa Fe and Taos between 1929 and 1949, where she often spent time at the homes of Mabel Dodge Luhan and D.H. Lawrence. Being very much a loner, she bought a Model A Ford and had someone [rumored to be Mabel's husband Tony Luhan] teach her how to drive so she could drive to a favorite site, sit in the back seat (turned around), and paint with her canvas propped against the back wall of the car. - Excerpt from Taos Painters

As you approach the house of Mabel Dodge Luhan (now a Taos hotel),
it’s easy to see why some of the greatest minds of the 20th century were inspired here. Situated at the end of a quiet road not far from the center
of town, the house appears much asit did in the days when Mabel admired her views of the sacred Taos Mountain from the third-story solarium.
One can only imagine the tantalizing conversations that must have
taken place within these walls. After all, Georgia O’Keeffe stayed here.
The Georgia O’Keeffe Room is quaint, with two twin beds, and located
on the first floor. She stayed here while visiting Mabel in 1929.
