New Mexico trip – Mesa Verde Natl Park

Drove from Durango, CO 50 miles west to Mesa Verde National Park. Wow! What a place. Dozens of elaborate cliff dwellings nestled into the mesa and canyon walls at over 7,000 feet. We took the guided walking tour to the fabulous Cliff Palace site.By the way, you get to this place from above down a hundred or so steps from the left then back up (on the far right of the photo) via wooden ladders and thousand-year old steps and hand-holds hewn into the rocks by the Ancient Pueblan indians. It’s a pretty thrilling little walk.
