Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Change things up with these side-trips from Mesa Verde National Park: Shiprock Rock Formation (in Shiprock) and Four Corners Monument (in Teec Nos Pos). Spend the 6th (Sun) exploring nature at Mesa Verde National Park. There's still lots to do: explore the ancient world of Cliff Palace, make a trip to Park Point, examine the collection at Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum, and steep yourself in history at Balcony House.

To see maps, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, read Mesa Verde National Park road trip website.

Expect a daytime high around °F in September, and nighttime lows around °F.
