Mesa Verde National Park

Last week we were camping about 30 minutes away from Mesa Verde National Park and because we have to work all day, we didn’t get a chance to visit it until the end of the week.

The “Spruce Tree House” was inhabited between 600 to 1300 AD and is in incredible condition.

We weren’t the only ones visiting a National Park on a holiday weekend, but it really wasn’t too bad.

    Leigh,
    Did you boondock? Did you find any nice campgrounds near the park…we are going to be there in September and beginning to look at options. Thanks again. Our weather has been crazy, and very unusual for Colorado. Glad the hail wasn’t any larger!!
