Mesa Verde National Park, Colorado

When I told my friend Tony that I was headed straight through to Canyonlands National Park in Utah from his house in Durango, CO - he strongly recommended that I stop by Mesa Verde National Park.  I'm glad I took his recommendation as Mesa Verde was really an intersting find.

Pictured above is the largest cliff dwelling in the park, consisting of 150 identified rooms and 23 Kivas - or spiritual rooms/spaces.  Since I still had a bit of a drive ahead of me into Utah, I wasn't able to view all the sites featuring different dwelling ruins and pueblo architecture.

I did however grab a few photos throughout the park which are pretty interesting.  I highly recommend this National Park to anyone traveling near the 'four-corners' area.
