Video TR: Mesa Verde National Park, CO

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I posted one of our video TRs here, but Mesa Verde is such a special place that I feel compelled to do so.

We found stellar boondocking on USFS land for just about any size rig on Madden Peak Road in Mancos, just 15 minutes from the main entrance to Mesa Verde. For those who may be unaware, Mesa Verde is a collection of ancient Puebloan cliff dwellings and we tour Cliff Palace, the largest cliff dwelling in North America that dates back to 1190 AD. The craftsmanship that these people exhibited in building these small villages is nothing short of remarkable, and it's a testament to that craftsmanship that these residences are largely still standing over 800 years later. 

If you do visit Mesa Verde, by all means sign up for one of the tours. That way you get to view the dwellings up close, rather than just from a distance from the canyon rim. You also gain fascinating insight from the explanations the ranger gives during your one-hour tour.

OK, without further ado here's the video:
