Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Plan my trip to Mesa Verde National Park with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Houston to Mesa Verde National Park is an approximately 8-hour combination of flight and shuttle. You can also do a combination of flight and taxi; or drive. Traveling from Houston to Mesa Verde National Park, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference.
