We did a little drive over to Mesa Verde National Park today after breakfast. It’s an easy drive, but havent been there since over a year ago, so it was fun to revisit some of the ruins. Especially before summer when it is very hot and slammed with touristas. Here are a few shots I took. Tha Ancient Pueblans occupied these Mesas and the valley to the north, now the location of the towns of Cortez and Mancos. They migrated to the Rio Grande Valley around a thousand years ago apparentlydue to a prolonged drought, not unlike what we are now experiencing.
