Day Trip: Mesa Verde

Alpen Rose RV Park, Durango, Colorado   H78  L51

Judy and I are still a little infatuated with our workamping area because the weather is so nice and there are so many choices of interesting places to visit nearby. A few days ago we drove about an hour east of Durango to Mesa Verde National Park.

Mesa Verde, Spanish for green table, offers a spectacular look into the lives of the Ancestral Pueblo people who made it their home for over 700 years, from A.D. 600 to A.D. 1300. Today, Mesa Verde National Park protects over 4,000 known archeological sites, including 600 cliff dwellings. These sites are some of the most notable and best preserved in the United States.
