Mesa Verde National Park — 6 nights

Whereas most national parks are primarily devoted to showcasing unique and special landscapes, Mesa Verde National Park focuses on ancient human habitation.
Visit Far View Sites and Yucca House National Monument for their historical value. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Square Tower House and Soda Canyon Overlook Trail. Take a break from Mesa Verde National Park with a short trip to Shiprock Rock Formation in Shiprock, about 1h 5 min away. There's much more to do: stroll through Point Lookout Trail, trek along Spruce Canyon Trail, don't miss a visit to Step House, and take a memorable drive along Ruins Road.

For other places to visit, maps, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Mesa Verde National Park day trip site.

In June in Mesa Verde National Park, expect temperatures between 89°F during the day and 46°F at night.
