Monday - Wednesday
From Durango, we went to Mesa Verde National Park in southwestern Colorado, where the Anasazi, or Ancestral Puebloans lived around 1000 AD or so. The park is vast, with lots of driving up to and around the mesas, but with some incredible ruins, still fairly intact, to view. The big disappointment was that the campground management had overbooked and would not, and could not, honor our confirmed and prepaid reservation! We found a good private campground just outside the park (and are getting a refund).
