Mesa Verde - A Trip Back in Time

This guest post supplied by Oliver Wipps

If you want to see something man-made that’s totally amazing and, at the same time, marvel at nature and the environment, take a trip to Mesa Verde National Park. Mesa Verde is located in the Four Corners region of southwestern Colorado. After entering the park, I drove for several miles on winding mountain roads. A stop at the museum and visitors center is essential. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

They provided me with fantastic information on visiting the cliff dwellings that are tucked away in the nooks and crannies of the canyons in the area. Many of the displays in the museum explained the way of life unique to the area. It was my first trip there, so I stayed with the gentler walking tours. If you’re adventurous, you can climb ladders to reach some of the more secluded dwellings.

The park is quiet and uncrowded. The markers and information boards at the stops along the walk and drive are interesting and complete. To have the best possible time, it’s a good idea to follow my “to do” list before you leave. Pack plenty of sunscreen. Include extra water and a few energy bars for your hike. Set your Adt Alarm. Make sure you’ve got your camera. Next time you’re in the Four Corners region, take a day to visit.
