Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Venture out of the city with trips to Shiprock Rock Formation (in Shiprock) and Teec Nos Pos (Teec Nos Pos Trading Post & Four Corners Monument). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Cliff Palace, make a trip to Step House, trek along Petroglyph Point Hike, and see the interesting displays at Chapin Mesa Archeological Museum.

To find reviews, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Mesa Verde National Park travel planner .

In July in Mesa Verde National Park, expect temperatures between 90°F during the day and 56°F at night. You will leave for home on the 31st (Sat).
