Mesa Verde Pueblos

What makes Mesa Verde National Park so unique is the historical artifacts in the park. The park boasts the most well preserved american historical artifacts. The artifacts are cliff dwellings used by the "ancestral puebloans". The first pueblo we went to was the Cliff Palace.





You have to pay and wait for hours to enter most of the pueblos. We decided to do our own thing and hike a little.



We did find a big pueblo that was open to everyone. This pueblo was called the Spruce Tree House.

These pueblos were built and used over 1400 years ago.



Next we head further Southwest to Flagstaff to see our friends Tibor and Kris Vegh!
