After breakfast in Ouray (part one of our road trip) and lunch in Telluride (part two), we continued driving southwest to the town of Cortez to conclude our road trip.
We arrived at the Mesa Verde National Park, late afternoon on Saturday. We still had several hours of daylight but not enough time to see all the ruins, which was a shame because I would have liked to take a guided tour but time was running out and we still had to drive back to Denver.... that night. (yes call us crazy!) So instead of seeing the cliff dwellings up close, we saw them from a distance.
Still, pretty impressive right?
