Full visit

Visited most every site that could be visited and hiked all the trails over a multi-day visit. The trails by the campground are quite nice and practically devoid of people. Saw some bears along the road. Hiked around Wetherill Mesa, which had kind of a "lost in time" feeling to it. More felt like I was hiking in an area that's been abandoned for a few decades. Trails near the museum were also nice, but too much graffiti. Overall nice visit

Interesting Cliff Dwellings  Sucess!

That date is an estimate as to when the family visited while i was a kid. We hiked up to all the major dwellings and explored them inside and out. I would recommend this national park to anyone with kids. It's fun to see all the different rooms, and climb up ladders and such. Neat stuff!

Interesting dwellings  Sucess!

Visited as a kid with the family. I remember climbing all the major cliff dwellings and thinking how neat they were. I was close by last year when in CO & AZ but never made it by. Look forward to seeing it again sometime.

Hiked the petroglyph trail before touring the Cliff palace. I want to go back and spend some more time in the area.

Ruins  Sucess!

Awesome history here. About 15 years ago, my father and I hiked down to cliff palace as well as some other ruins along the rim top.

Mesa Verde   Sucess!

So much better to experience this in person as opposed to watching the TV documentaries.

Awesome  Sucess!

Memorial day weekend, 2007. A bit like Disneyland until you get on one of the trails and experience the area the way the natives might have.
