Mesa Verde

      July 20,2014.. Well we saw a lot this week from Moab, Utah to Durango, Colorado. Lots of pretty high mountains to climb but there is a downside too!! We stopped in Moab for 3 days to see Arches and then moved on to Durango, Colorado. In Durango we arrived friday at Junction Creek in the San Juan National Park. We found a campsite 2 miles back a very dusty road for 4 nights at $9.50/nite with no hookups. But the mountain is cool at night down to 55* and 80* during day but we are in tall trees.
  On Saturday , we drive 45 miles to Mesa Verde Park to see the cliff dwellings that Pueblos built over 1,000 years ago. I signed up for a Balcony House Tour, it is $4.00 for the Ranger tour. Carol’s knees would not be able to climb 32 step ladder and also crawl 12 feet thru a 2 foot square tunnel. I barely did the crawl, but I squeezed down to a size 8 to get thru? The whole tour was very Interesting and I am glad I did it..but warning it was a tough climb and crawl. here are my pictures..enjoy..
