What an amazing trip. History, nature, & a spectacular view all in one. My only regrets were that we didn’t have time to go on the guided tours and that this is where my grandmother realized her fear of heights. I felt like i was on top of the world as i looked out at one of the view points. I also really enjoyed getting into the history of the different houses. It was amazing!!!over 3 years ago

I went there with my boyfriend for my birthday and it was pretty awesome. There are guided tours which you have to pay for, but also plenty of self-guided places to walk for free. We tent-camped for one night (about $20) in the park. This was a week before they closed camping sites for the winter. The weather was great during the day, but at night it got cold quick. It was 32 degrees when we went to sleep and 18 degrees when we woke up the next morning! Our blankets were covered in ice. Saw some great wildlife, deers everywhere! But, although it was a great experience, camping at this time of year is a bit uncomfortable.over 4 years ago
But there’s a lot of it that I didn’t remember from 4th grade.
We stopped in at Mesa Verde on the way to New Mexico.
Things that I did not recall:
All that aside, Mesa Verde is a great place to visit. I just have to remember to arrive a little earlier in the day. We arrived at the gate around 2:30 p.m. Although we got to see a lot in the amount of time that we were there, I felt a little bit too rushed.over 4 years ago
