Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Balcony House and Petroglyph Point Hike. Get out of town with these interesting Mesa Verde National Park side-trips: Shiprock Rock Formation (in Shiprock) and Teec Nos Pos (Four Corners Monument & Teec Nos Pos Trading Post). Spend the 27th (Sat) exploring nature at Mesa Verde National Park. The adventure continues: delve into the distant past at Cliff Palace, take a memorable drive along Ruins Road, don't miss a visit to Step House, and get to know the fascinating history of Far View Sites.
