I mentioned on Instagram how Ra Paulette has devoted his life to carving out caves in the hillsides of Northern New Mexico. They call them the Secret Caves because they’re not meant to be visited. And in fact, they are so secret that I wouldn’t be able to find them again on my own account. But the experience is magical, almost spiritual, and the work intricate. And now the land that holds two of those caves is for sale for $1M! (May I make a suggestion: you could build a nice little tipi commune out there… I’m sure the city folk would pay top dollar. Smart investment?)
That day Brooke Geahan, Mickey Sumner and I also explored Ghost Ranch and hiked up to the Chimney Rocks. The hike is about an hour uphill, but totally doable and a MUST, especially around sunset. The higher you climb, the better the views. It’s just breathtaking. And I did all of it in a skirt, so…
