Mesa Verde National Park

8/4/2010: Camp at Mesa Verde National Park, then Drop Kelly off at Durango Airport (after stopping by a brewery of course)

We went to Mesa Verde NP on the way back to Durango.  It was really neat to see the Indian ruins again (my 3rd visit).  And the girls enjoyed it too (their 1st).  We did a brief hike to some cave dwellings.  It is fascinating what was constructed with archaic techniques.  And that it is still standing (well, some of it).

A close up view of the cliff dwellings.

The three of us down below in a ceremonial room.

A picture of a model of how things used to look.
I didn't take a picture from far away of the actual ruins, so I am including this.
