Modern-day version of the original Spanish gaucho style trousers.Gaucho
Derived from a Spanish term which loosely translated means "cowboy," gaucho style trousers are calf-length, wide legged pants generally made of suede or leather, which were worn by women for riding. (~Aimee)

The album Gaucho by Steely Dan.
A Bit of Gaucho Music Trivia: Gaucho is the title of the last album by the extremely popular rock-jazz group, Steely Dan. It was released in 1980, featuring a song of the same name. The title refers to an individual dressed in ornate Spanish cowboy gear. I first heard Gaucho in the control room of a New York City recording studio. The instrumental arrangements and superb engineering made for one of the most profound listening experiences of my life. At the end of the song, I had tears in my eyes. (~Aimee)

Georgia O’Keeffe Museum
The Georgia O’Keeffe Museum contains the largest collection of Georgia O’Keeffe paintings in the world. The facility is totally dedicated to this one woman’s work, whose haunting depictions of the shapes and colors of Northern New Mexico (in particular her home in Abiquiu) made her internationally famous.

Getting Hitched
An Old West term, meaning “getting married.” It was derived from the practice of horses being hitched to a wagon. Used as slang even today, it leads one to believe that somehow marriage is a burden or sharp restriction of an individual’s freedom. I’ll leave this for the reader to decide. (~Jean)

Ghost Ranch is located in some of the most beautiful country New Mexico has to offer.
Ghost Ranch
Located in Abiquiu, New Mexico, Ghost Ranch was the home of artist Georgia O'Keeffe from 1949 until her death in 1986. Located in an area known for its breathtaking red rock formations, it is now a retreat and popular tourist attraction in Northern New Mexico, an easy day trip from either Santa Fe or Taos. (~Aimee)

A perennial favorite of Mexican appetizers, guacamole is made from mashed avocado, lemon, garlic, and other ingredients (usually chopped onion and diced tomato), and served with warmed corn tortilla chips for dipping. (~Aimee)
