I might not get my girls to these amazing locations at the best photographic time of day, but we get there. This is a pic of my girls at the top of #petroglyph trail in #MesaVerdeNationalPark in #Colorado . The cliff edge in front of them drops away several hundred feet, and the views are amazing. We were one of the few people there that morning, and my girls had no problem with the 2.4 mile trail that was a lot of vertical climb (you have to go down one side of the canyon and back up the other) and some serious scrambling added in to boot. It was a wonderful day. . . . . . #makingmemories #mesaverde #nationalpark #hiking #mountains #roadtrip #familytime #rockymountains #westerncape
This is a three panel quilt of Mesa Verde. On display this weekend at the Road to California quilt show. I didn't get the creator's name #quilts #artquilts #roadtoca2018 #roadtocalifornia2018 #mesaverdenationalpark
#SpruceTreeHouse is the third largest cliff dwelling in #MesaVerdeNationalPark It was apparently named for the enormous Douglas Spruce tree – now called Douglas Fir – that once stood at the front of the alcove and grew all the way up to the mesa top. The earliest explorers of Mesa Verde purportedly climbed up and down to the ruins using this tree.

Looked out the window and ran out the door. The sunset went from a light pink in my drive home to this..... #nofilter #cosunset #mancos #thelittlethings #mesaverdenationalpark
A visit to #BalconyHouse is one of the most adventurous tours in #MesaVerdeNationalPark A hundred foot staircase into the canyon; a 30-foot ladder climb into the alcove; a twelve-foot scurry through an 18-inch-wide tunnel... Soooooooo worth it! This intimate, ranger led tour is the only way into this remarkable site. Have you ever been?
Sunny days, star-filled nights, peaceful mornings. #mesaverdelife #mesaverdenationalpark #sprucecanyon #petroglyphtrail
Far and away my favourite monument in #MesaVerdeNationalPark – and I think, the most beautiful – is #SquareTowerHouse Its distinctive 4-storey tower is not free-standing like the round towers found througout the park, but was built directly into the curving back wall of the alcove. I must have visited this overlook at least half a dozen times during my short stay here, delighting in how the feeling of this unique site changed with the different temperatures and times of day. Which of Mesa Verde’s cliff dwellings did you find most captivating?
Ancient ruins... seeing how people once lived makes you appreciate what you have #mesaverde #colorado #utah #desert #mesaverdenationalpark #ruins #nativeamerican #travel #explore #optoutside #nature #appreciate #adventure
One of the coolest parts of Mesa Verde National Park was running into the wild horses that were roaming the area. #colorado #mesaverdenationalpark #wildhorses #horses #landscapephotography
Last summer on our way back from Taylor Park we camped out in San Juan National Forest outside of Dolores, CO with our good friends @swanman1215 and @tohapi. Nice area to camp but the riding was just OK. The trails were extremely dusty and made it difficult to follow another rider. We took a day trip to Mesa Verde National Park. The Park was amazing and we highly recommend taking a day to visit. . #rznafamily #rzrlife #rzr1000 #rzr900 #sanjuannationalforest #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #genesissupremerv #toyhauler #chevy #ford #offroad #sidebyside #boondocking #familycamping #adventure #rv #gorving #getoutthere #forestriver #dolorescolorado #fifthwheel #5thwheel #familytrip #travelblog #travelblogger

Mesa Verde National Park is a National Park and World Heritage Site located in Montezuma County, Colorado.

#MesaVerdeNationalPark is one of the most remarkable human and natural landscapes I’ve ever visited. Mesa Verde - the Green Table - is a dense forest of pinyon and juniper, refreshed by springs, stretching across this high flat-topped sandstone landmass. And of all the ruins and monuments in the park, certainly #CliffPalace is the crown jewel! From the snowy December morning in 1888 when the “magnificent city” was glimpsed by cowboys Richard Wetherill and Charlie Mason the site has been a true sensation: attracting a steady stream of visitors, explorers and adventurers until being designated a National Park in 1906. Have you visited this magnificent city?
Good ol' Point Look Out at the foot of Mesa Verde National Park. This picture was taken in 2015. I also lived under the shadow of this thing when I worked as a dishwasher at the park during the summer of 2008. #mesaverdenationalpark #mesaverde #photo #photoaday #photoofday #photography #photographer

Do you remember @jaymin26 the visit huascar and me had a great time during our migration from @schoolofarchat_taliesin - #wisconsin to #arizona .

Парк создан в 1906 году для охраны многочисленных руин поселений индейцев анасази (предков современных пуэбло), созданных в VI—XIII веках. #mesaverdenationalpark #colorado #usa #nature #dream #like4like #instagood
14. When I was fourteen I never understood who I was or what I wanted. At 14 you understand yourself, you aren’t afraid to be you. I’m happy to have you in this world filled of chaos. You have a unique soul that is compassionate and beautiful. You are a warrior. You stand your ground. The words you speak have strength and intelligence, sometimes I forget how old you really are. I am happy I have a brother as wonderful as you. Love you. T. #happybirthday
