Wij zetten vandaag onze reis voort naar #mesaverdenationalpark . We zeggen gedag aan #archesnationalpark en reizen met veel zin naar onze tweede deel van de reis. Wat gaat de tijd snel! Bah!
Me looking for more adventures. 🔭 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• Sami and I took a short detour at Park Point in Mesa Verde National Park before going on our cliff dwelling tour. This is the highest place in the park and provides 360-degree views of the area. You can see out 100 miles too! This particular view is of Angel Peak. 🏔 •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• #mesaverdenationalpark #angelpeak #cortezcolorado #visitcolorado #colorado #travelcolorado #coloradotravel #coloradoblogger #coloradomountains #sonya6000 #coloradolife #coloradotography #coloradogram
Ruinas arqueológicas de los indios "Pueblo", bautizados así por exploradores españoles del siglo XVI. Parque Nacional de MESA VERDE (Colorado - EE.UU. / USA) ----------- When Spanish Explorers of the 16th century first established contact with local population, this and other ruins had long been abandoned by the ancestors of Navajo, Ute and other tribes of Native Americans. They were named "Pueblo" by the Spaniards for their resemblances to their own towns or "pueblos".
The weather at Mesa Verde was on the “wet” side but the scenery was breathtaking! The Slim Shady from @yakimaracks gave us the protection we needed so we could stay dry while still enjoying the fresh air😊#yakimaracks #mesaverdenationalpark #teardroptrailer #nucamprv #nucamp #littleguy #littleguytrailers #littleguymax #nps #exploremore #stayoutside #swcolorado #seecolorado #ilovecamping #i_love_camping

Nestled in the side of a cliff, the ‘Cliff Palace’ of Mesa Verde NP was one of the most interesting parks I’ve been to. The history of this village is pretty amazing to think about. . . . . . . . #mesaverdenationalpark #mesaverde #nationalparks #colorado #getoutside #seasonschange #fallorado #visitcolorado #travelblogger #canonphotography #canon5dmarkiii #landscapephotography #landscape #photographer #photooftheday

How many people just get up on Monday and do the same thing they've done every single Monday - go to work and just turn on route automatic and no longer have any meaning in their life? - Erwin McManus American Author Fire ripped through this section of Mess Verde in New Mexico. Summer Trip 2017 photo by me. Don’t waste it. Don’t sit on the sidelines. Breath it, drink it, and remember to look at life. I love this shot. #blackandwhite #monochromatic #tree #fire #mesaverdenationalpark @mesaverdenps #lifelessonslearned
Catching up on some vacation photos. I love when travels allow visitation to petroglyph sites. We arrived at Mesa Verde NP later than I’d liked, so without any dwellings to visit, we set off on the Petroglyph Point Trail which was more challenging than I probably should have embarked upon, but it’s petroglyphs!! The trail is narrow and requires nimble navigation, but has beautiful canyon views throughout. Although many sites have similar drawings reflective of communication at that time, the large hand prints and what looks like love birds were new to me. The evening sun threw strong shadows, limiting my abilities of capturing wider angles. What I usually think about is what drew these peoples to these particular locations and how hard they had to work to simply survive #mesaverdenationalpark #petroglyphs #petroglyphpoint #findyourpark #beoutside #nationalparkgeek #hikes #history

Pueblo cliff dwelling #mesaverdenationalpark
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege to go on an after hours, private, moon rise tour of Balcony House at Mesa Verde. So. Super. Cool! Involved climbing a 32ft ladder to reach the dwellings, crawling through a 12ft long/18inch wide tunnel, and then another 60ft of wicked steep ladders and stone steps to exit. Truly in awe of the people who made these cliffs home. 📍Ancestral Puebloans
The learning opportunities in this park are endless. Thanks for reminding us @mpvaracalli ・・・ One of the best places to visit in Colorado to learn about Native American history and American beauty. #mesaverdenationalpark #colorado #coloradolive #america #usa #nationalpark #scenic #america #findyourpark #nationalparkgeek #discover #nationalparkusa #nationalparklife #adventure #traveladdict #nationalparkservice #nps
Day 6 we blasted around #mesaverdenationalpark . half- moon posing in front of the sun temple. Mesa Verde is the largest archaeological preserve in the US. #ruins #yogaeverywhere
Mesa Verde • Dwellings built into the cliffs throughout the canyon by Ancestral Puebloans in the 13th century. ‘Twas a thing of beauty. . . #mesaverdenationalpark #mesaverde #pueblo #history #architecture #ancientarchitecture #colorado #cortez #montezuma #park #america #usa #buildings #ruins #nativeamerica #travel #travelgram #landcape #
Day 32: Mesa Verde Nat'l Park - Wow Mesa Verde is so cool! We took a guided tour of the Balcony House cliff dwelling, and then got to see a bunch of other cliff dwelling on Chapin Mesa including Cliff Palace, Spruce Tree House, Square Tower House, Hemenway, and more. Tons of pueblos and pit houses to check out too. Looking forward to exploring Wetherill Mesa tomorrow! As much as I love all the cool nature things we are doing in other parks, this has been such a nice way to change it up a bit. #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #mvnp #chapinmesa #balconyhouse #cliffpalace #pithouse #kiva #cliffdwellings #nationalpark #nationalparksroadtrip #travel #traveling #adventuresofmarion
We headed out to Mesa Verde for fall break it was definitely worth it, another one for the books. “Oh the places you will go”-Dr. Suess #misstherestofthecrew #mesaverdenationalpark #fall2018 #nofilter
“From Chaco Canyon, Pueblo cultures reportedly moved NW at least for a time, so we traveled there and spent the night on top of the Mesa at Far View Lodge after seeking out the many cliff dwellings, towers, and pit houses, plus a fine NPS museum. #travel #adventuretime #adventure #getlost #wanderlust #mesaverdenationalpark #pueblo #cliffdwellers #nps #nationalparksartsfoundation #colorado #folpa
ƈʟɨʄʄ քǟʟǟƈɛ @ᴍᴇsᴀ ᴠᴇʀᴅᴇ ɴᴀᴛɪᴏɴᴀʟ ᴘᴀʀᴋ #cliffpalace is not only the grandest of the 5 cliff dwellings situated in #mesaverdenationalpark - it's the largest preserved cliff dwelling remaining in all of #northamerica It is estimated that this ancient Peublo Native American dwelling was constructed throughout 1190-1260. Thought to be an area for administration, for social means & for hosting ceremonies; the Ancestral (as in first NATIVE inhabitants of the region) Puebloan people erected this site predominantly from sandstone, mortar & wooden beams. Around 1300; the Peublo Natives deserted their native land, & migrated to warmer territory. In 1888; farmers, in search of stray cattle, rediscovered the abandoned area. #mesaverde #nationalpark #colorado #usa #nativeamerican #native #ancient #historic #architecture #sandstone #mountain #mesa #cliff #alcove #geography #nature #wanderlust #travel #us #usnationalparks #roadtrip #october #2018
These people were architectural geniuses. And they didn’t even have pencils and paper to jot down their calculations. ~~~~~ Also, when the rangers say, “Don’t touch the pueblos,” what they mean is, “Please don’t turn the circa-thirteenth-century hand-built, remarkably preserved and irreplaceable piece of history black with your grimy, oily hands.” #mesaverdenationalpark
This particular dwelling is called Spruce Tree House. It can be seen from the museum within the National Park. Mesa Verde is so much more beautiful than I was expecting. I’ll share Cliff Palace and Balcony House tomorrow. . . . . #sprucetreehouse #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #donjulio #donjulio70 #tequila #nationalpark #colorado #newmexico #tequila #drinks #drink #thetravelingflask #travel #goplacesdrinkthere #vacation #vacationphotography #wanderlust #instadaily #igers #photooftheday #iphonesia #picoftheday #havefun #fun #daydrinking #instagood #travelphotograpy #flask #illdrinktothat #history
Mesa Verde is so much more beautiful than I was expecting. Plenty of cliff dwellings to share in the next couple of days. We’re staying inside the National Park so no bars in sight. This is where a flask really earns it’s keep! Don Julio 70th Anniversary tequila seems right for this place even though I’m still many miles from the Mexican boarder. . . . . . #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #donjulio #donjulio70 #tequila #nationalpark #colorado #newmexico #tequila #drinks #drink #thetravelingflask #travel #goplacesdrinkthere #vacation #vacationphotography #wanderlust #instadaily #igers #photooftheday #iphonesia #picoftheday #havefun #fun #daydrinking #instagood #travelphotograpy #flask #illdrinktothat #history
