Awesome place; but the family is incomplete and the experience lessened because of it. #imissmywife #mesaverdenationalpark #cliffpalace
That night after leaving Mesa Verde we stumble across a carnival with a 🎡 which was awesome..... . . . . . #mesaverdenationalpark #mesaverde #gayexplorer #gayguy #carnival #explore #random #stumbledupon
geology fact i learned this week: sandstone turns red and pink when it's exposed to extreme heat, like during a wildfire. and there was a fire by step house on wetherill mesa the day before we visited it, so this is probably from recent fire exposure. #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #mesaverdecolorado #colorado #geology
I’m very thankful for my adventure life and I work hard to maintain it. Seeing some of the most revered places in the American West over the past five years has been truly life changing, leading to my move to Colorado in 2016. Since then, I’ve had the privilege of visiting Colorado’s four national parks, some several times. It’s hard to put into words the feeling of immersing yourself in such incredible surroundings, which is probably why I picked up photography in the first place. Life throws up so many challenges but there are few other places I’d choose to endure them 🙏 * * * #ilovecolorado #coloradophotographer #coloradoartist #coloradolife #coloradoliving #mountainlife #canon 📷 #canont5 #exploretocreate #livingmybestlife #coloradorockies #rockymountains #nationalparkservice #nationalparks #nps #findyourpark #findyourself #optoutside #getoutthere #adventureisoutthere #adventurethatislife #photographyislife #ig_great_pics #publiclands #mesaverdenationalpark #greatsanddunesnationalpark #rockymountainnationalpark #blackcanyonofthegunnison #createtoexplore #canyon

"Men come and go, cities rise and fall, whole civilizations appear and disappear-the earth remains, slightly modified. The earth remains, and the heartbreaking beauty where there are no hearts to break....I sometimes choose to think, no doubt perversely, that man is a dream, thought an illusion, and only rock is real. Rock and sun." - Edward Abbey
#mesaverdenationalpark .The archiologycal site of the #pueblo nation. They settled at #mesaverde cliffs around the year 1200. Amazing place to visit. #nativeamerican #cortezcolorado #nationalparks #colorado
We spent the morning on a backcountry trek to the seldom visited Mug House. It was worth it, even with the rattlesnake that surprised us from its high perch in the bushes 😂 #mughouse #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #mvnp #nationalpark #cliffswelling #pueblo #nps #findyourpark #colorado #co #colorfulcolorado #explorecolorado #hikecolorado #visitcolorado #getoutside #optoutside #adventure #explore @durangoboone
There’s a lot of stories to tell
Travel flashback! I never got around to sharing this other cliff dwelling I painted at Mesa Verde back in May, even though it was prob one of my favorites from that trip! It was not an easy painting, though. I was too tired to stand up, so I ended up painting it through the chain link fence enclosing the overlook.... 😆 Consistently making art while traveling can be exhausting - sometimes paintable spots fall into your lap, and sometimes you have to fight for them! But now I can’t imagine traveling any other way... 👩🏻‍🎨 Big travel news coming soon!! ——————— SOLD
Mesa Verde, Colorado (2015) . Cliff Palace has absolutely amazing structures! It's the largest cliff dwelling in North America with 23 kivas and 150 rooms. It's estimated the Ancient Puebloans built the structures between 1190-1260 CE and inhabited the structures until 1300 CE. It's mind-blowing to think about how long these structures have existed. While the location was inhabited, it's estimated about 100 people lived here. This site is one of about 600 cliff dwellings located at Mesa Verde.
balcony house was pretty cool too. not pictured: the three ladders and a staircase i climbed up to get here. #mesaverde #mesaverdenationalpark #mesaverdecolorado #mesatoploop #balconyhouse #cliffhouse #cliffdwelling #colorado

Hi everyone as you know I like to support local events. There is a program that is great for kids and adults who just want to stop by and learn of the local art work that will be displayed in the city. If you want to get involved or have an opinion this seems like the time to do it. Get involved check it out! #albuquerque #mesaverdenationalpark #apprenticeship #supportisapparent

Square Tower is one of the ancient Puebloan, cliff dwellings in Mesa Verde National Park. I stopped by Square Tower very late in the day, almost as the park was closing. The last bit of sunlight shone on the cliff and tower face, leaving the rest of the dwelling in the shadows. The light and shadow emphasized the tower and cliff walls adding a sense of drama to the amazing architecture. Beautiful and mystical Mesa Verde National Park! #mesaverdenps #mesaverdenationalpark #mesa_verde_country #visitmesaverde #colorado #outtherecolorado #colorado_creative #colorado_explore #coloradophotography #visitcolorado

Cliff Palace was the first set of ruins to be seen by Richard Wetherill and his brother-in-law, Charlie Mason on December 18th, 1888. They were riding across the mesa top looking for stray cattle, when they saw the “magnificent city” through the blowing snow and christened it Cliff Palace. . . . #mesaverdenationalpark #coloradohistory #absolutelyamazing #learningexperience
'He used to say that he never felt the hardness of the human struggle or the sadness of history as he felt it among those ruins. He used to say, too, that it made one feel an obligation to do one's best.' - Willa Cather Colin looking through a window at the Balcony House ruins in @mesaverdenps. Amazing to see these ancestral Puebloan structures that have survived a millennium perched on a cliff along the Mesa. #mesaverdenationalpark #mesaverde #nationalpark #nationalparks #ancestralpuebloan #ancestralpuebloans #colorado
Best part of seeing Mesa Verde was our tour guide, David NightEagle. He ended our tour by paying respects to the ancient ancestors with one of his handcrafted flutes. ✨ • • • #mesaverde #nationalpark #mesaverdenationalpark #mancos #Coloardo #coloRADo #explorecolorado #adventure #LeslieKnope #optouside #optoutdoors #travel #explore #hiking #womenwhohike #womenwhoexplore #nativeamerican #ancestors #flute #music #intothewild #idhikethat #tourguide

Another stop on my western road trip was at Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. For me this was special because it was a return after 18 years. This national park was the start of my real mountain asks bouldering and climbing life. It was just as stunning as it was 18 years ago and little, if any, changed. Jessica did more of the daring stuff this time than me.
